St. Daniel Comments

Died in 309, He and four companions, Elias, Isaias, Jeremy and Samuel were Egyptians who visited Christians condemned to work in the mines of Cilicia during Maximus persecution, to comfort them. Apprehended at the gates of Caesarea, Palestine, they were brought before the governor, Firmilian and accused of being Christians. They were all tortured and then beheaded.

    St Daniel, dear saint, you and your companions were Egyptians who suffered severe bodily pain and died for love of fellow Christians. This shows us that love of God must be made manifest in our love of neighbour. Give to us the grace of being truly prayerful in our daily lives and active in our works of mercy. Christ our beloved Saviour gives us opportunities for this. May we through the intercession of Mother Mary, St. Joseph and the saints respond to Christ's command. Dear St Daniel, pray for all who are helpless and wracked in bed of pain, the elderly who are vulnerable and have no-one to look after them. Pray also for children who are born with severe disablement, poor speech, poor reasoning, poor learning capacity and who suffer terrible epileptic seizures. Give them a permanent cure, which I truly believe Christ will grant. Amen

    I teach Confirmation classes at my church (St. Bernard in Bellflower, CA), and I am always looking for good information on the saints. This article is particularly useful as we are highlighting the martyrs and their deeply profound sacrifices for the faith.
