St. Patrick Novena - Day Four

As a young man, St. Patrick studied for the priesthood, but his education was not of a high standard. Yet St. Patrick did great things for God as His missionary to the people of Ireland . God also calls us, regardless of our faults and failings, to be missionaries and messengers of the Good News of salvation.


Jesus, I am far from a perfect person. You know my faults, flaws, and weaknesses. But You also recognize my strengths and abilities far better than I do. You have chosen me to be Your messenger to the people I encounter in my life each day. I accept Your call and give myself to You. Let Your love and compassion flow through me to others. Heal my faults, strengthen my weaknesses, give me courage so that I can be Your faithful messenger today and every day.

A lector is the person that reads the Mass readings at Mass but not including the Gospel reading. Only a priest or deacon may read the Gospel reading.
