Feast: December 4
Dear St. John, intercede for us as we endeavor to influence our friends and neighbors to the ways of God and His Church. Pray that those of us who have wealth use it to serve God’s purposes. Pray also that those of us blessed with artistic skill use it to further God’s Church. And finally, pray that those of us blessed with children may follow the example of your parents and protect our children against the harmful effects of the culture of our own times. Amen.
