Saint Jodocus: Patron Saint against Fire

Extract from Saint Jodocus: “Seventh century king in Brittany, the son of King Juthael of Amorica. Following a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy c.636, he abdicated. Ordained at Ponthieu. Hermit at Runiacum, which was later renamed Saint-Josse-sur-Mer. Felt a special call to pray for sailors. In the early 10th century, refugees from Brittany to England brought some of his relics with them, mainly clippings from his hair and nails which were reported to continue to grow after his death; they were enshrined in Winchester Cathedral. Joducus, often under the name Josse, was very popular in Middle Ages England, even used in oaths by the Wife of Bath in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.” PICTURE: Roundel with Saint Jodocus and St. Clare of Assisi.

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

Gas Plant Explosions in Mexico (September 2012) (America) See World Mission Rosary Intentions: September 24- October 7, 2012.

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.
