St. Benedict Comments

In our modern world, we talk fast, we travel fast, and we even pray fast. Have you ever attended rosaries where people seem to say the words at breakneck speed -- apparently more worried about finishing before Mass starts than savoring each word? Our impatience to get to the end, our focus on completion rather than process is a real danger in reading Scripture when every word is from God and has a power all its own. Benedict knew that power ... Continue Reading

    DEAR ST. BENEDICT,
    My partners and I are planning to put up a pre-school under your name. Please help me find the best location for the school and help us also find the best teachers and staff to compose the personnel roster. We also ask you to help us and guide us in preparing everything we need such as the building and facilities, teachers preparation, marketing of the program for a good enrollment, management and organization, etc. These we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord through your intercession, Amen.

    Today, after mass, a friend gifted me a St. Benedict medal. I am so happy and wore it right away. When I got home I searched about him in the internet and I am so delighted to know about his life. From now on I will include him during my prayer time. I am so blessed.
    St. Benedict please pray for my husband's conversion. Noel was baptized a catholic but was not brought up as such. Born on Christmas day!!! Isn't it so sad St. Benedict ?!! :( We are in our sixties ! though I try my best to be an example..... I pray to the Lord that before he passes on he will go back to Jesus... amen.

    Dear Saint Benedict,

    I pray that you will help praying all these people who asks for your help. They love our Father, they deserve mercy and forgiveness. They need peace within their own lives. This I ask in Jesus' mighty name through the loving intercession of Mother Mary. Amen.

    Dear Saint,

    Please instill the Pope, the cardinals, the bishops and the priests of the Catholic Church with your power of prayer and contemplation that they truly feel the presence and the power of God that they place all their trust in Him and devout themselves in living and preaching the gospels in letter and spirit. Protect the Church from the onslaught of this material and modernist world which seeks to destroy the divinity and wisdom of Christ by making people slaves by its influences. Empower me dear saint to overcome such temptation and realise its vanities and commit myself to the power and protection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Enable me to believe that we live not by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Amen.

    My mother named me Benedict from a vow she had to St Benedict
    my mom lost a baby boy as it was being born and before I was born she prayed and had a vow to St Benedict that if I was born and lived my name would be Benedict and she always told me to pray to St.Benedict and I always do

    I was given St. Benedict, I was given 5 medals by one of my co-workers. We just bought a house and she told me these medals would protect my house from any evil. I barely found about you and believe you are a generous and miraculous. I ask you to please help my husband find a better job, where we can spend more time as a family and for me to be able to be at home with my baby. I thank you God for all the good things that You have given us, including the ones You haven’t given us. I ask you to please give us our health especially to my baby and husband. Denisse

    Dear Saint Benedict,

    My son was diagnosed with Renal Vascular Hypertension a couple of year ago. He is the sweetest boy in the world. He will undergo a MRI and dialysis this December to see if this condition is reversible. We have been told that it probably isn't. Please intercede and pray for him, in addition to helping him be strong through these procedures. I believe in miracles, and perhaps a miracle will happen to Matt. Thank you and I will pass your name on.

    St. Benedict, I thank you for the successful Speech Day ceremony that we held today. All my tiredness was worth it. Now dear Saint, help me to conclude the tasks that are still to be done by tomorrow, before school closes: my yearbook articles, stories, and reports, messages, and photos. Please help me to get the cooperation I need for entrance exam papers to be marked while I'm on holiday.
    I give God thanks for all the multitude of blessings I and my students have received throughout the school year. Bless my holiday dear Jesus, grant me safe travel. Give me the grace to see what needs be done and do it efficiently. Most of all may we enjoy the company of children, their spouses and our grandchildren.
    I pray for healing, both physical and mental for all sick children. St. Benedict please work a miracle for them Have pity and compasssion on them. Amen

    St Benedict, and St. Scholistica lovely twins. Wonderful servants of God. You taught us to trust in God's providence. Help me to recall all the moments in my life in which I have received You divine protection. Yes, even extreme danger to my life. I was protected from near death. Dear Jesus, I trust in you, daily more and more. Amen.
