Optional Memorial of St. Romuald, Abbot
Lord, we are surrounded by wolves, who seek to feast upon the faithful and destroy your Church. Let us not dwell only among ourselves O Lord, but go out among these predators, and spread to them your Gospel. By your will O Lord, we shall make in our persecutors new hearts shaped by an adoration of your glory, that we might all come together as brother and sister in life yet to come. Amen.
1 Kings 21:17-29
