St. Raymond Penafort

“May the God of love and peace set your hearts at rest and speed you on your journey; may he meanwhile shelter you from disturbance by others in the hidden recesses of his love, until he brings you at last into that place of complete plenitude where you will repose for ever in the vision of peace, in the security of trust and in the restful enjoyment of his riches.” ~St. Raymond 

Almighty God, you inspired Saint Raymond with an immense compassion for sinners and captives. Grant us, through his prayer, freedom from sin and the grace to do your will. 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
