Optional Memorial of St. Januarius, Bishop and Martyr
Lord Jesus, many did not see at the time you walked among men that you would be the redeemer of our fallen souls. Rather you were mocked and derided for cavorting with precisely the people in most need of your grace. May those most in need of you always reach out to you, and let those without care for the weakest endure the punishments worthy of their pride. Amen.
