Here is a special prayer for today’s saint, St. William of Vercelli, also known as William of Monte Vergine.
You were a father to your monks
and a shepherd to your people.
Pray for us that we might have our sight restored —
that we might see
with the eyes of
our hearts and souls,
God’s presence in and around us.
Teach us to nourish our spiritual
journeys with prayer
so that we too might be instruments
of God’s light and love to others.
In the spirit of St. Benedict help us
to be people of hospitality who let
our work become prayer.
Let us find God in each other.
