God of Wisdom, Saint Willibrord (c. 658-739) converted many non-Christians at a very old age. No aches or disabling illnesses could stop this apostle, and he won many people to the Faith through his cheerful disposition, wise understandings, and genuine concern for all people. I ask him to pray for the elderly people in my life and all those in nursing homes. O Lord, fill them with a desire to make a difference in others’ lives and show them how to do it. Help me to remain fruitful in my old age, so that when I take my final breath I will hear You say, “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Saint Willibrord, pray for us. Amen.
