Blessed Lord, Saints Cyril and Methodius were brothers who worked successfully to convert pagans. Saint Cyril’s special prayer was: “I return to You, Your people, Your gift to me. Direct them with Your powerful right hand, and protect them under the shadow of Your wings.” I ask both of these saints to pray for the people God has placed in my life. Help me, O Lord, to be an inspiration for their spiritual growth. Protect me from focusing on the hurts they cause, so that I may see these people as gifts. Teach me to be grateful for the opportunities of serving them. Saints Cyril and Methodius, pray for me. Amen.
