(Feast: May 15 th)
you lived a humble life working the land.
You attended Holy Mass each morning
which jeopardized the employment
that allowed your family to eat.
The Lord repayed your love
by sending his angels to plow the fields
while you were at Church.
ask Our Lord Jesus
to place deep faith in our hearts
and water it each day with your prayers
that we may progress in holiness as you did.
Pray that as our heart grows in love and humility
we may be a living sign of Jesus
to those around us.
As a farmer who used his hands
to bring forth nurishing food
please ask Jesus to bless us with a bountiful harvest.
Pray that our hands and bodies will remain strong
that we may farm the land God has given us.
Ask Jesus to care for our gardens
as he tends our hearts.
Pray that weeds will be kept far from our fields
and likewise give us an aversion to sin.
Humbly we ask that you carry the petitions
we hold in our heart
to our most loving and generous Lord.
Say 1 Our Father…
Say 1 Hail Mary…
Say 1 Glory Be…
