Feast of St. Cajetan of Thiene

August 7, 2020

O glorious St. Cajetan,
you spent long hours helping the sick and worked yourself to exhaustion
in helping victims of plagues which were frequent in your time.
You cared for the sick not just to heal them,
but to guide them to a happy death.
You wanted their souls, not their bodies.
Help us to understand that we have to prepare ourselves to a happy death.
May we likewise see that the most terrible sickness is our sinfulness,
and we always have to examine ourselves for the sins we commit daily.
Inspire us to have repentant hearts
that we may always be prepared to meet the Lord.

Amen.
