June 15 – Saint Vitus


listenPrecious Savior, Saint Vitus worked many miracles in Your name and refused to sacrifice to the gods.  After he was arrested, You freed him from prison with a storm that destroyed the pagan temples, and You gave him an angel who led him back home.  He is the patron saint of actors, comedians, and dancers, so I ask him to pray for the entertainers in my society today.  May those who do not know You, dear Lord, have experiences that lead them into repentance and conversion, and may the Christian entertainers continue to grow in faith, so that this industry is given over more fully to You.  Saint Vitus, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)

quoteThe nearer Christ comes to a heart, the more it becomes conscious of its guilt; it will then either ask for his mercy and find peace, or else it will turn against Him because it is not yet ready to give up its sinfulness.”


The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
