Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini
November 13

Holy Spirit, when Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini was a child, she pretended she was a missionary to China as she sailed paper boats on a stream. Although You eventually sent her west to America instead of East to the Orient, her childhood games shaped her desire to serve You. I ask her to pray for our children to be protected from the lure of games that are worldly, violent, or occultic. O Lord, prevent society’s influences from blocking their desire to serve You when they grow up. Touch their souls to make them uneasy about games that erode their love for You and teach them to listen to Your guidance. Saint Frances, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Lawrence O’Toole
November 14

Holy Jesus, Saint Lawrence O’Toole was an archbishop who spent years working hard for the Church. On his deathbed, someone asked him if he wanted to make a will. He grinned saying, “God knows I don’t have a penny in the world.” He had already given away everything he owned to help others. I ask him to pray for my decisions about what to do with the money and material goods I own, including my retirement fund and other investments that I’m using to protect my future. O Lord, sanctify my plans and give me a holy perspective on how much to save and how much to give away. Saint Lawrence, pray for me. Amen.

Saint Albert the Great
November 15

O Divine Creator, Saint Albert the Great was a bishop who introduced Greek and Arabic science to medieval Europe, raising understanding of botany, biology, physics, and other studies of nature. A scientist himself, he wrote many books on these subjects. I ask him to pray for all scientists today, for their talents to be used to promote life rather than to destroy it, for elusive cures to be found, and for the moral use of the discoveries that they have already made. O Lord, fill them with Your Holy Spirit to guide them into understanding and respecting that You are the Author and Master of all creation. Saint Albert, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Gertrude
November 16

Beloved Lord, Saint Gertrude was a very gifted student and loved every subject except religion. When she studied philosophy, it began to twist her mind and lead her away from the Faith, so You visited her in a vision and called her back. From then on she studied Scripture and the writings of the Church Fathers. I ask her to pray for my studies as well as the educational interests of the high school and college students I know. Give us discernment, O Holy Spirit, to recognize any deceptions in the materials we read, and increase in us a desire to study those things that will help us grow in holiness. Saint Gertrude, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary
November 17

Sweet Jesus, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was a princess who married a prince. Concerned for the poor, she donated to them her portion of the prince’s income and then sold her luxurious possessions to give them more. After her husband died, she renounced worldly wealth, built a hospice for the weak and sickly, and invited the most wretched to dine with her. I ask her to intercede for the salvation of all rich persons today, for You said it’s hard for them to enter the kingdom of Heaven. Replace greedy hearts with the same generous heart You gave to Saint Elizabeth. Help us all to discover Your true riches. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Rose-Philippine Duchesne
November 18

Gracious God, Saint Rose-Philippine Duchesne handled very difficult work as a missionary in the new world of America, overcoming many obstacles while opening convents and dealing with the different languages and customs of the people. She continued to accept these challenges even into her 70s. I ask her to pray for the challenges I’m confronting, that I am renewed by Your love and encouraged by Your guidance. Enliven me so that I never run out of energy for doing the work You call me to accomplish. O Lord, remove any obstacles that threaten the work or show me how to overcome them. Saint Rose-Philippine, pray for me. Amen.

Saint Nerses
November 19

Holy Spirit, Saint Nerses devoted his life to teaching both priests and laity to come alive in the Faith and increase their holiness. He believed that no matter how spiritually advanced a person might be, there was always need for more growth. I ask him to pray for all those who give parish missions, retreats, spirituality courses, and other teachings about the Good News. Inspire them, O Lord, to preach messages that challenge us and awaken us to greater faith rather than messages that do little more than please our ears. Raise up speakers who are growing in holiness themselves. Saint Nerses, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Edmund of East Anglia
November 20

My Lord, Saint Edmund of East Anglia was a king who was captured by pagan invaders. The enemy wanted him to sign a treaty that would harm his country and Church, but he chose to die rather than to grieve You and hurt his people. I ask him to pray for me to remain loyal to You and to the people You have called me to serve. Make me sensitive, Holy Spirit, to the snares of compromise and teach me to avoid mixing the world’s teachings with the true Faith. When I am pressured to put aside Your ways for the sake of keeping a job or making a good impression, give me courage to do Your will. Saint Edmund, pray for me. Amen.

Dedication of Mary
November 21

Heavenly Father, the Blessed Virgin Mary was dedicated to You by her parents when she was three. In the temple, she joined the girls who spent their days praying, reading Scripture, and serving the temple priests. Her holiness was very evident, and the high priest thought that You probably had great plans for her. I ask Mary to pray for the plans You have for my life. Where I have strayed onto a road of my own choosing, give me her hand to guide me back to where You want me. Where I need to wait for a new plan to begin, give me the grace remain patient and say, “Your will be done.” Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for me. Amen.

Saint Cecilia
November 22

Beloved Jesus, Saint Cecilia’s parents wed her to a pagan nobleman. Eager to convert her new husband, she told him about the angel that always escorted her. He wanted to see the angel, too, so he asked for his soul to be purified by baptism. The next time Saint Cecilia prayed, her husband saw the angel place a crown on both of their heads. I ask her and my guardian angel to pray for the unconverted spouses in my family and circles of friends, and for the spouses who believe in You but are slow in spiritual growth. Lord, in Your perfect timing, help them to open up to Your friendship and purification. Saint Cecilia, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Clement the 1st
November 23

Blessed Savior, Saint Clement the 1st knew the Apostles personally before they were martyred. As pope, he challenged his people to follow their examples. He said, “We ought to put aside vain and useless concerns and should consider what is good, pleasing and acceptable in the sight of Him who made us.” I ask him to pray against any worries in me, my friends, family, and fellow parishioners. Dear Lord, teach us to keep our focus off worldly matters, because they are meaningless in view of eternity. Help us to see everything, even our deaths, from the perspective of Your kingdom. Saint Clement, pray for us. Amen.

Saints Flora and Mary
November 24

Sacred Jesus, Saint Flora and Saint Mary became friends when both were facing martyrdom. After they were imprisoned, they received letters of encouragement from Saint Eulogius, who wrote from the jail where he and other Christians were confined. The girls pledged to intercede for them after their deaths. They were beheaded and two weeks later all captive Christians were set free. I ask them to pray for the release of Christians who today are being held hostage because of their faith. O Lord, let their lives—and their deaths—be a witness for all the world to see Your glory. Saints Flora and Mary, pray for us. Amen.

Saint Catherine of Alexandria
November 25

Holy Spirit, You gave Saint Catherine of Alexandria the words and the wisdom to convert philosophers who had tried to refute the beliefs of her faith. Today, many teachers of philosophy use their classrooms and writings to undermine the faith of Christians. I ask her to pray for the Christians I know who are vulnerable to persuasive tactics that might cause them to doubt the truth or to accept misconceptions and deceptions. Give them the words and the wisdom, O Spirit of Truth, to convert to the true faith those who try to convert them away from the faith. Saint Catherine, pray for us. Amen.

Saint John Berchmans
November 26

Holy Spirit, Saint John Berchmans was an ordinary young man who desired to become a holy priest. During his preparations, he loved serving at the altar, praying the Rosary, meditating about the crucifix, and striving for holiness by following the rules of his Jesuit order. However, he died of illness while still a seminarian. He is the patron saint of altar servers, so I ask him to pray for the children who are involved in this ministry. Fill them with awe, O Lord. Teach us to help them understand what a great honor it is to assist the priest in Mass. Inspire altar boys to become holy priests and lead every child into ministry. Saint John Berchmans, pray for us. Amen.

Saint James Intercisus
November 27

Heavenly King, Saint James Intercisus did not have the courage to profess the Faith during the persecutions because he was afraid of losing the pagan king’s friendship. His wife and mother, however, challenged him to put God above all his fears, and warned him that his sin could lead him to Hell. He repented, and gladly accepted torture and death because of his new love for You. I ask him to pray for me when I make decisions based on fear. Help me, dear God, to listen to my loved ones when they seek to turn me back to You. Renew my mind and give me the courage to love You more than my earthly life. Saint James, pray for me. Amen.

Saint Catherine Labouré
November 28

Almighty Father, You gave Saint Catherine Labouré a vision of the Blessed Mother revealing an image that was to be made into the Miraculous Medal. You commissioned her to spread its devotion. It included the prayer: “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” You promised that those who wear it as a sign of devotion will receive the graces needed for holy living. I ask Saint Catherine to pray for the miracles I need. Dear God, bless me abundantly with the grace to resist sin, understand Your will, and obey Your commandments. O Mary and Saint Catherine, pray for me. Amen.

Saint Francis Anthony of Lucera
November 29

Good Jesus, Saint Francis Anthony of Lucera led a life that overflowed with love. His compassion and aid went to every needy person he could find. It was he who originated the idea of collecting gifts for poor families during the Christmas season. I ask him to pray for gift-giving ministries that provide Christmas joy to needy people. O Lord, show me which families to buy presents for and which organizations to give donations to. As I shop for my own family and friends, keep me from turning Your birthday into a materialistic holiday. Help me to give generously the gifts of love. Saint Francis Anthony, pray for us. Amen.
