Saint of the Day

In the Catholic Church we have a multitude of witnesses who have gone before us livng the Christian Life.  They have done some heroic acts of love including, for some of them, offering their life believing in Jesus Christ.  Our parish patron, St. Martin of Tours, is remembered every November 11th.  Click the link below to be inspired by the man or woman whom the Church holds up as a model of Christian life for us today.  You too are called to be a saint.  May today's Saint, pray for us!

Lord Jesus Christ, you give us your flesh and blood for the life of the world, and you desire that all people come to the Supper of the Sacrifice of the Lamb. Renew in your Church the truth, beauty, and goodness contained in the Most Blessed Eucharist.
     Jesus living in the Eucharist, come and live in me.
   Jesus healing in the Eucharist, come and heal me.
Jesus sacrificing yourself in the Eucharist, come & suffer in me
   Jesus rising in the Eucharist, come and rise to new life in me.
     Jesus loving in the Eucharist, come and love in me.
Lord Jesus Christ, through the paschal mystery of your death and resurrection made present in every Holy Mass, pour out your healing love on your Church and on our world. Grant that as we lift you up during this time of Eucharistic Revival, your Holy Spirit may draw all people to join us at this Banquet of Life. You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.
