Divine Father, Saint Seraphina (1238-1253) was the victim of disease and neglect, and suffered continuously. I ask her to intercede for the disabled and handicapped people of my church, my neighborhood, my family and friends, including both the physically challenged and the emotionally wounded. Remind us to offer up our sufferings for the healing and conversion of others. I place our hurts upon the Cross of Christ, so that our pain will unite us to Him and His redemption. Teach us to endure pain with both dignity and the joy that comes from the experiencing the comfort of the Holy Spirit. Saint Seraphina, pray for us. Amen.

Feast day March 12
When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours. More than performing works of mercy, we are paying a debt of justice.”
Don’t be anxious about what you have, but about what you are.”
A man does not climb a mountain in great bounds, but by taking slow, steady steps.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
