Anthony Zaccaria, Priest

From Christian Prayer:

Saint Anthony Zaccaria was born in Cremona in Lombardy in 1502. He studied medicine at Padua. After his ordination to the priesthood, he founded Society of Clerics of Saint Paul, also known as the Barnabites. The Society did much to reform the morals of the faithful. He died in 1539.

Prayer for Morning Prayer:

Lord,
enable us to grasp in the spirit of Saint Paul
the sublime wisdom of Jesus Christ,
the wisdom which inspired Saint Anthony Zaccaria
to preach the message of salvation in your Church.

Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.
