Saint of the day: St.Christina of Tyre
St. Christina of Tyre lived during the 3rd century. She was born into a rich family, her father being the governor of Tyre. She grew to become a beautiful girl with many suitors. Her father, however, wanted her to become a pagan priestess so she was placed in a special room wherein many gold and silver idols had been set up. Through her faith in the true God she smashed all the idols. Her father went into a rage and had her severely beaten and placed in prison. Christina remained strong in her faith. She was to be executed but God protected her she was left unharmed from the execution.

Later on, she would survive several more efforts to execute her; she even outlived her father who passed in his sleep. Christina was unyielding in her faith in God and she was able to convert hundreds of people to the true faith in Christ. Eventually a different governor was sent in place of her father and still she was left alive and unharmed. Through this miracle, many more came to believe in the Lord, our God. Finally she was executed and was declared a saint who died for her faith.

MATTHEW 6:25-34

Do Not Worry

25 “I tell you, do not worry. Don’t worry about your life and what you will eat or drink. And don’t worry about your body and what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than eating? Aren’t there more important things for the body than clothes?

26 “Look at the birds of the air. They don’t plant or gather crops. They don’t put away crops in storerooms. But your Father who is in heaven feeds them. Aren’t you worth much more than they are?

27 “Can you add even one hour to your life by worrying?
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the wild flowers grow. They don’t work or make clothing. 29 But here is what I tell you. Not even Solomon in all of his glory was dressed like one of those flowers.

30 “If that is how God dresses the wild grass, won’t he dress you even better? After all, the grass is here only today. Tomorrow it is thrown into the fire. Your faith is so small!

31 “So don’t worry. Don’t say, ‘What will we eat?’ Or, ‘What will we drink?’ Or, ‘What will we wear?’ 32 People who are ungodly run after all of those things. Your Father who is in heaven knows that you need them.

33 “But put God’s kingdom first. Do what he wants you to do. Then all of those things will also be given to you.

34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Dear God,
Thank you for everything. Please continue to guide us and let us remember that we need to take a moment and relax. Please help us remember that we will never be completely worry-free with all the stress coming but through praying, it will trumps daily concerns. Please help us know that we should not worry and that we should pray and be happy.

In Jesus' name we pray, Amen
