Today's Optional Memorial: Saint Anthony Mary Claret

Saint Anthony Mary Claret, Bishop

Today's saint seems not to have wasted any time.  He is credited with 144 books, 25,000 sermons, 300,000 confirmations and blessing 9,000 marriages!

O God, who for the evangelization of peoples strengthened the Bishop Saint Anthony Mary Claret with admirable charity and long-suffering, grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things that are yours, we may earnestly devote ourselves to winning our brothers and sisters for Christ. Who lives and reigns with you.
