Prayer of the Day

Feast of St. Teresa of Avila

October 15th, 2016
"Do not worry about how to defend yourselves and what to say because the Holy Spirit will teach you." Luke 12 : 8-12
Peter_Paul_Rubens_ St. Teresa of Avila

Jesus here tells us that trials will come but not to be afraid or even to worry.  Jesus will tell them what to say when adversity strikes. He will be with them and also with us. Down the centuries and even in our own day we have to trust Jesus that he is there with us. Anyone who declares himself for Jesus in this life will be declared by Jesus in the presence of the angels.

Prayer

Jesus throughout the world your followers are being persecuted and killed. Let them hear your words in their struggle. Jesus, give them strength and fortitude. Give them a strong faith and may we remember them in our prayers. Heal the persecutors also and remind us to pray for them as well. Amen
