Prayer for the Optional Memorial of St. Lawrence Ruiz and Companions

Join us in prayer today!

Not all understood who you were, Lord Jesus, for they wished for you to be something other than what you truly are. They did not wish to confront the suffering which lay ahead of you, which was undertaken for the salvation of all mankind. It was this suffering which was ultimately necessary however, for us to be redeemed, to be saved from the death which you conquered. Amen.
