January 23 – Saint Lufthild: Patron Saint of Homeless People and Child Abuse Victims

Saint Lufthild: Patron of Homeless People (Feast Date: January 23)

Extract fromSaint Lufthild: “Abused by a jealous step-mother for her kindness to the poor, Lufthild left home young to live as an often-homeless hermit in and around Cologne, Germany.” See also: Sainte Lufthilde (FR).

 We, at the CTF/SOS DRS have prayed for the intercession of St. St. Lufthild on behalf of those affected by the following catastrophes:

Post-Election Violence and Displacement in Cote d’Ivoire (March 2011) (Africa) See World Mission Rosary Intentions: March 26 – April 10, 2011.

That the Lord in His Divine Mercy – through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary – may build up His Kingdom,make these mysteries a reality in our lives, strengthen us in our common mission, and come to the aid of those for whom we pray.
