Loving Lord, Saint Theodoric (c. 580 – c. 630) was taken from his parents as a boy because they were thieves and abused him. Raised by Christians, he became a monk and founded the abbey at Mont d’Or, France, where he served as its first abbot. He became a well-known evangelist and healer. He converted many, including his own father. I ask him to intercede for all foster children and foster parents. O Jesus, make sure the children are placed in good homes and heal their wounds. Bless the families that take them in and help them to give Your love to the displaced children. I also ask Saint Theodoric to pray for the birth parents, that they experience healing and reconciliation with their children. Saint Theodoric, pray for us. Amen.
