Today's saint: St. Christina.

There are actually many saints who share this day. On AmericanCatholic.org, today's saint is listed as St. Leander of Seville, but I chose St. Christina for my post on the saint of the day. The only information that I could find about St. Christina is that she is a Persian martyr who was scourged to death. Considering that Queen Esther, from today's readings, was married to the King of Persia, I thought it best to honor St. Christina and ask for her intercession today.

St. Christina of Persia, you were scourged to death for the Faith you held dear in the land of Persia, the land of Queen Esther. We ask for your help as we endure our trials, to plead for us to God, our Father, that we may have mercy and be saved from the wiles of Satan.

O Lord, we humbly ask that you grant the prayers of St. Christina for all those who turn to her for help. In Jesus' precious name we pray.
Amen.
