Today (5-21-06) is Saint Bernardine of Siena’s feast day. He is my favorite saint. I would like to share with you some information on this saint here at this website http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/02505b.htm Also, here are a couple of prayers to Saint Bernardine if Siena if you would like to say them:
Dear Saint of the Franciscan Order, you were a tireless preacher of God’s Saving Word. By your growing love for Jesus you spread that love all around, advertising his Holy Name. Be kind to advertisers in our frantic times. Make them broadcast only what is true and what can serve the well-being of humankind, while doing all for the glory of God. Amen.
Saint Bernardine of Siena, words were very important to you. You spent most of your life speaking the golden words of Jesus’ mercy and his Holy Name. And you abhorred words that were shameful. Pray for us that we may always choose to speak Jesus’ name with reverence and choose words of love over words of shame. Amen
