Bloggers Celebrating St. Leo the Great’s Feast Day

In the prior years, I have always tried to write a post for my confirmation patron’s feast day.  This year, I thought that it would be a nice change of pace and much easier to link some of posts others have written in celebration of St. Leo the Great.  Here they are below.

Prayer Asking St. Leo’s Intercession for the Church

O Lord our God, grant that thy Church, following the teaching of thy servant Leo of Rome, may hold fast the great mystery of our redemption, and adore the one Christ, true God and true Man, neither divided from our human nature nor separate from thy divine Being; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever.

O God, You established Your Church on the solid rock of St Peter. Grant that she may persevere in Your truth and enjoy continual peace through the intercession of Pope St Leo. Amen.  (Found on Prayers4Reparation’s Blog)

Happy feast of St. Leo the Great to all!
