Saint Lazarus, patron of the sick, brother of Martha and Marty, and a close friend of Jesus. He was born in Bethany, a small town near Jerusalem. Jesus knew his father Simon and used to visit their home every time he was in the area. He developed so a close friendship with Lazarus, who followed his teaching and ideals. The many miracles of Saint Lazarus are celebrated on each year on his feast day of December 17th.
Saint Lazarus Prayer: “Saint Lazarus I ask in your most sacred and sweet name that you help me on the path of spiritual peace and material success. May your healing hands rest upon me, flowing into every cell in my body and into the depths of my soul. Cleansing, purifying and restoring to me wellness and strength. Please keep away all the wicked, miserable people who lurk in the shadows seeking to harm me. I look to you, Saint Lazarus to confuse them and remove them from my life. You, the sublime and generous protector, who opens your heart to all good people. Intercede with all your hearts blood, to liberate me from those who would interrupt my path. Give me strength to resist temptation and live in wellness. Protect me and save me from all harm. I open my mind and heart believing in your infinite power. AMEN.”
Saints are spiritual beings who have been tasked with maintaining this Earth, watching over the affairs of humanity and each has dominion over a portion of nature. Each Saint is identified with natural forces as well as with human interests or endeavors. These Saints are mediators between humanity and the Supreme Being.
Pray to Saints because they are already in heaven, and they can intercede for you. In moments of anxiety, you need to hope and believe in something that helps you recover faith and maintain peace in your life.
