Prayer for the Optional Memorial of St. Peter Damian

Join us in prayer today!

It is a petty human desire to not see you upon the cross, Lord Jesus. But we must understand that your suffering was necessary for our own salvation, and that great things can be accomplished when one sacrifices in the name of others. Let us see your sacrifice not as a time of mourning, but of celebration, for the freedom from sin which such an act has given us. Amen.
