September 26 – Saints Cosmas & Damian

Saints Cosmas and Damian

listenO My Jesus, Saints Cosmas and Damian (d.c. 303) were twins who became excellent doctors.  They refused payment for their medical care because they believed that when they treated patients, they were also caring for You.  By conveying great love, they won the hearts of their patients as they taught them about the Faith.  I ask them to pray for my special skills, that I use them for Your glory.  I also ask them to pray for all those in the medical field, that they grow in generosity of spirit.  Bring conversion to the unsaved and teach Christians to serve You through their professional lives.  Saints Cosmas and Damian, pray for us.  Amen.

Heavenly Father, help me, You know my pain, You’ve always known what has happened because You see everything even in a most hidden corner. I come with a broken heart. God, if you deign, please God soften and touch Damianus’s heart for me.
