Today is the feast day of St. Francis de Sales, the patron saint of journalists. Working for a Catholic newspaper, today is kind of a big deal.
I do like to pray to particular saints for specific causes. I have a prayer card for St. Francis de Sales posted in my cube wall at work. Every time I am stuck with finding the right words for an article, I say a quick prayer to this special saint. He hears from me quite often.
This morning, the editor of Catholic New York posted a prayer by St. Francis de Sales in the newsroom for my coworkers and I to read. There was one line in the prayer that I especially liked and wanted to share. “Do not fear what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and everyday.” It’s a comforting thought.
Do you have any favorite quotes by St. Francis de Sales? Or perhaps a quote or prayer from one of your favorite saints? Please share!
