Saints for Slackers (Daily Podcast)
Saints for Slacker is a NEW Podcast launching Lent 2021 to share little daily inspirations for those who need hope but just can’t take one more friggin’ thing. For 40 days, there will be a brief reflection based on 1 quote from 1 saint by 1 person and a new hilarious “wannabe patron saint” generated by our team of slackers. This is not at all meant to make light of this holy season of Lent, but rather to help lighten our hearts that have endured such great hardships, especially over the past year.

Recommended Prayers

Brother Charles de Foucauld’s Prayer of Abandonment:
Father, I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will. 
Whatever you may do, I thank you: I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures –
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul: I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself, to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence, for you are my Father.

St Gertrude’s Prayer to Release 1000 Souls from Purgatory:
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

9 Memorares recommended by St. Mother Teresa
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your clemency hear and answer me. Amen.

Surrender Novena by Don Dolindo Ruotolo
O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything!

Excerpt from St Padre Pio’s Stay With Me Prayer:
Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak and I need Your strength, that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You.
