*DAY 1 – JANUARY 11*
*THE GIFT OF FAITH*
Holy Martyr, St. Sebastian, no greater gift could be vouchsafed you than the gift of holy faith. Sanctified in holy baptism you grew in holiness since the days of your childhood. So much has God loved you that He made you a pillar of strength in the early church. Strengthen also my faith, that it may become for me a source of energy for a perfect Christian life and that I too may be a shining example to my fellowmen.
(State your intentions here…)_
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, see me humbly prostrate before Thee to implore Thy mercy. I am a wretched sinner who has lived hitherto in ease and wanton negligence of my Christian duties. How dangerously close have I been in the past to becoming a traitor to Thee! Pardon me, good and merciful Jesus. I will change my life: with ardent love I will adhere to Thee in future and prove myself worthy of being Thy disciple and follower of St. Sebastian.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be…
*St. Sebastian, pray for us.*
