Saint Denis and Companions (died c. 258)
Traditionally, the first Bishop of France. It is said that Denis was sent to
Gaul from Rome in the third century and beheaded in the persecution under
Valerius in 258. According to one of the legends, after he was beheaded on
Montmartre ("mountain of martyrs") in Paris, he carried his head to a
village northeast of the city. St. Genevieve built a basilica over his tomb
at the beginning of the sixth century.

"When God saw by their (citizens of Ninevah) actions how they had turned
from their evil way, he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to
them; he did not carry it out.  ~Jonah 3:1-10

"If you, O Lord, mark iniquities, who can stand?"  ~Psalm 130

"Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the
serving."  ~Luke 10:38-42

Scriptures: http://www.nccbuscc.org/nab/

Like the Ninevites, we can turn from our selfish and evil ways and back to
God.  Like Mary, we can sit at the feet of Jesus and listen to what He has
to say. We can choose the better part, as we draw near to the God who always
yearns to draw near to us.

.=: P R A Y E R    F O R    T H E    D A Y :=.

I pray that I can turn away from my selfishness and back to God.  I pray
that I may accept God's call for me to come closer to Him.

home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
