May 16: Saint Brendan the Navigator

Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with You.

Christ of the mysteries, I trust You to be stronger than each storm within me. I will trust in the darkness and know that my times, even now, are in Your hand. Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for You. Amen ~A prayer attributed to St. Brendan

    This is a beautiful prayer. For me it reminds me of the “new ground” that I am opening in the garden. I am adjusting to the new sensations of fatique and sore muscles and joints that comes with manual labor and aging. As I adjust, I am challenged to be more humble about how small, frail and vulnerable I am. My prayer is that I will be more like St. Brendan and trust in God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit to mold me and carry meet where He wants me to serve Him and my brothers and sisters more and more. St. Brendan pray for us.
