Lord God, we thank You for giving us Your priest, St. Cajetan of Thiene, as an example of holiness. Help us to imitate the devotion to You that he showed by choosing to serve You as a priest.

St. Cajetan of Thiene, you first learned about the Faith from you pious mother. From her, you learned how to serve God with devotion. As a young man, you studied the Faith more as you earned a degree in canon law.

You did not immediately set out to become a priest, but you eventually realized God was calling you to this path.

Pray that I may be open to God leading me in an unexpected direction. Pray that I will be open to following Him.

As a priest, you served God wholeheartedly. You served Him in the poor and suffering, and you desired to reform His Church.

Pray for me, that I may serve God as fervently as you did!
