Saint Palladius of Antioch

Today the Church commemorates Saint Palladius of Antioch. Palladius was hermit in the desert near Antioch, Syria. He led a simple life in a mountain cave. Because of his struggles, he received from the Lord a gift of wonder-working. Once, a merchant was found murdered by robbers near his cave. People accused him of the murder, but through fervent prayer the dead man rose up and named his murderers. Palladius died in 390, and left behind several writings.

Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, you choose your elect out of every nation, tribe, and people, and show forth your glory in their lives. Grant that we, who today commemorate Saint Palladius of Antioch, may, like him, be found faithful to you in all that we say and do to the priase of your holy Name. We make our prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
