Memorial of St. Benedict, Abbot
Lord Jesus, your disciples have gone out into the world to free it of the demons who prowl around us. Holy Lord, guard the souls of your priests and bishops who wage daily war against the devil and his servants. May the successors to the apostles’ continually come to our aid, O Lord, and reject the temptations of the world which lead us all astray. Amen.
