Thursday 12th November: Remembering the Saints- St Josaphat

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Reflection

Today the Catholic Church remembers and honours St Josaphat, know as the Saint of Unity because he gave his life in his promotion of unity between the Catholic and Orthodox churches.

Prayer

Lord,
fill your Church with the Spirit
that gave Saint Josaphat courage
to lay down his life for his people.
By his prayers
may your Spirit make us strong
and willing to offer our lives
for our brothers and sisters.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Amen.
