Bl. Damian of Finario (15th century)

Damian was kidnapped as an infant. When his parents prayed fervently for help, a miraculous light led searchers to him. He later joined the Dominicans and became a famous preacher and miracle worker throughout Italy. Hundreds converted during his missions.
God of truth, for the salvation of the faithful you endowed Blessed Damian with wondrous virtues and powers of speech. Through his prayers may we hear your word with an open heart and hold fast to it with patience. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
