St. Dymphna for Acceptance and Trust

Lord our God, you led the holy virgin and martyr St. Dymphna through danger and trial and gave her a glorious crown in heaven. Through her intercession grant that I too may trust in your abiding presence in my time of suffering and trial. Give me the strength I need to face my situation with courage and hope. Help me to unite my sufferings to those of Jesus, so that I may follow your Son more closely and rejoice forever with him in heaven. I ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.


The Saints on Prayer

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. ~Saint Augustine of Hippo

What prayer could be more true before God the Father than that which the Son, who is Truth, uttered with His own lips? ~Saint John Chrysostom

He who prays most receives most. ~Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Without prayer nothing good is done. God’s works are done with our hands joined, and on our knees. Even when we run, we must remain spiritually kneeling before Him. ~Saint Luigi Orione

Have confidence in prayer. It is the unfailing power which God has given us. By means of it you will obtain the salvation of the dear souls whom God has given you and all your loved ones.” Ask and you shall receive,” Our Lord said. Be yourself with the good Lord. ~Saint Peter Julian Eymard
