October 21 – Saint Ursula

Saint Ursula

listenHeavenly Father, Saint Ursula (4th century) loved children and became a teacher.  She taught them about the Good News and instructed them in how to lead holy lives.  She is the patron saint of Catholic education, students, and teachers.  I ask her to intercede for the Catholic schools in my area, that whatever problems they face are resolved according to Your wisdom, O Lord.  Bless their teachers; may they remain true to the Gospel in all of their lessons.  Bless the students; may they learn about the Faith and also how to live the Faith.  Provide Catholic education to families who cannot afford the normal tuition.  Saint Ursula, pray for us.  Amen.
