I could use prayers for assorted personal intentions of mine.

I’m trudging through some annoying, disheartening, worrying things right now.

Thanks!

St. Jerome illumination

Today we celebrate St. Jerome, Father of the Church, Doctor of the Church, and author of the Latin Vulgate translation of the Bible.  He is a Patron Saint of librarians and libraries, which makes him very near and dear to my heart.  :D

I love his Prayer for Christ’s Mercy:

O Lord, show your mercy to me and gladden my heart. I am like the man on the way to Jericho who was overtaken by robbers, wounded and left for dead. O Good Samaritan, come to my aid, I am like the sheep that went astray. O Good Shepherd, seek me out and bring me home in accord with your will. Let me dwell in your house all the days of my life and praise you for ever and ever with those who are there.

St. Jerome, pray for us!
