class="alignrightSaint Faith, Patron Saint of Soldiers (Feast Date: October 6)

Extract from  St. Faith: “Her unreliable legend is that she was haled before Dacian, procurator at Agen, France, for her Christianity during Diocletian’s persecution of the Christians. She was then tortured to death for her Christianity on a red-hot brazier. Also executed with her was St. Alberta (March 11th); when some of the spectators objected, Dacian had them beheaded.”  See PICTURE of Saint Faith.

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

Retaliatory Suicide Bombings in Pakistan (May 13, 2011)   (Asia) See World Mission Rosary Intentions: May 23 – June 5, 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.
