    Saint Sebastian, please bless my daughter's team today as they compete in regionals. Please bestow upon them the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship necessary for success. They have worked hard, overcome injuries, and are poised to have a remarkable season. Please grant them faith in themselves and each other, and graciousness in victory and defeat. Thank you. Amen.

    St. Sebastian please bless my son Sam that he will get an offer to play on the tennis team at the Jesuit college he is pursuing. Please bless his qualities of athleticism for the glory of God and physical endurance through which you served God yourself. Amen

    I visited St Sebastian church in Rome last year and am thankful of taking him as my patron. He was a very brave man and kind person who stood by his faith.

    St. Sebastian might be a patron saint to all who feel persucuted, including gay men, but as a saint he would never approve any same sex sexual behavior.
