My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Prayer to Saint Andrew, the Apostle
O Glorious Saint Andrew,
you were the first to recognize
and follow the Lamb of God.
With your friend Saint John, you remained
with Jesus for that first day, for your entire life,
and now throughout eternity.
As you led your brother Saint Peter to Christ
and many others after him,
draw us also to Him.
Teach us to lead others to Christ
Solely out of love for Him
and dedication in His service.
Help us to learn the lesson of the cross
and to carry our daily crosses without complaint
so that they may carry us to Jesus.
A Prayer for Peace of Mind
by St. Frances Xavier Cabrini
Fortify me with the grace
of Your Holy Spirit
and give Your peace to my soul
that I may be free from all needless
anxiety, solicitude and worry.
Help me to desire always that which
is pleasing and acceptable to You
so that Your will may be my will.
