The Life of Saints

  • Saint Francis of Assisi

A saint of poverty, humility, nature, animals (birds).

Prayer:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Amen.

  • Saint Anthony of Padua

More than just a saint to ask for petitions when we lose something, this Saint went through his life, searching for something more and eventually found his life and vocation in Franciscan spirituality.

  • Saint Benedict

Inspired life to be entirely committed to God in his ways and behavior with others.

His written works:

-The Life of Saint Benedict

The Rule of Benedictine

May we all aspire to be like the Saints, to live a life devoted to Christ. To call out to saints, in our times of struggle and difficulties; in faith by an example of their lives, we make this prayer through Christ our Lord, Amen.
