Benedictine saints & blesseds: October 2010 Archives

The Benedictines celebrate the feast of Saint Maurus, a first disciple of Saint Benedict on January 15 and the Roman Martyrology notes his feast day as today. Liturgical calendars of religious aren't always the same, sometimes for very good reasons. For Saint Maurus' feast day in January I posted a prayer for the sick through his intercession which may interest you. Today, we're honoring Saint Benedict and his student Maurus, by giving this prayer more "press" recalling the profound love they had for the Cross of Christ.

Let us pray:

Through the intercession of the Immaculate Mother of God, ever a virgin, and by the intercession of St. Benedict and of St. Maurus, may the power of God + the Father, the wisdom of God + the Son, and the might of God + the Holy Spirit, deliver you from this infirmity. Amen.

May God's will be done in all things, and so may it be done in your case, just as you seek and desire only the praise and honor of the all-holy Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.
