Prayer of the Day
Feast of St. DeclanJuly 27th, 2016
In today’s Reading, Jeremiah expresses the agony of his failure, but God tells him a prophet must realise that what he preaches is difficult and painful. He will have to suffer in silence but strength will be given to him. He is not alone, as God will always be with him.
Today is the feast of St. Declan, who is considered to be one of the pre-Patrician saints. He was of noble blood. He went to Europe to continue his studies where he was ordained priest and possibly bishop. He settled in Ardmore and evangelised the Decies country.
Let us pray; Sacred heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in thee. Amen
