    I thank St. Sebastian, patron saint of athletes, for interceding for my daughter as she tried out for her high school tennis team. I pray that he will continue to guide her and her team so that they will be united and compete with honor.

    I have been praying for my son. I believe he has been guided by God to become a paramedic firefighter. He has reached all benchmarks, became a finalist, and now, his final step is to pass his Physical Ability Test. It is challenging. I have been praying to Saint Sebastion among others, only to realize later that he is the patron for those facing a physical ability test. Please pray with us for Ryan. I will let you know on Tuesday. I believe this is his destined work. Thank you.

    It says that he joined the Roman Army in 283 but he died in 268.... I thought Jesus was the only one to be resurrected?

    St. Sebastian please give my daughter the strength and confidence to lead her team to victory against strong competition. I know she feels the weight of an inexperienced team on her back and she needs support to bring her goals to fruition. Bless each of them to play to their highest ability. Reward her for her lifelong efforts.
