Sept 1: St Giles the Hermit

Lord, infinitely Holy and Glorified in Your Saints, You inspired Giles to lead the life of a hermit. We thank You for granting him the blessing and the strength to detach himself from the world so that the heroism of the evangelical virtues of poverty, obedience, and chastity, could triumph in his hermitage. We beseech You to grant us the grace of loving and serving You, following his example. Almighty God, Who has manifested Your power through the intercessions of St. Giles, grant us our petitions through his intercession. Amen
St. Giles, pray for us.
