Today is the feast of St. Lawrence, deacon and martyr. Please offer prayers for me and my fellow deacons on the feast of this prominent deacon in the Church!
The following is the prayer I began my day with today, asking for the intercession of St. Lawrence:
St. Lawrence, who in your youth suffered and died for the faith, hear my prayers. Obtain for me deep faith, strong hope, a sincere love of God and neighbor, and humble obedience.
Inspire me to come to the aid of the poor, the needy, the sick, and the afflicted. Lead me in the path of conversion. May God’s Kingdom spread far and wide on earth.
Intercede for my prayers for today: For the repose of the souls of those that lost their lives in the explosion in Beirut, for all of the schools trying their best to provide for the needs of their students during the challenging times, for the homeless, for those impacted financially by the coronavirus, and for a personal intention I hold in the silence of my heart.
Finally, grant that I live as a worthy person of God.
