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.
