Prayer for Permanent Deacons: Holy God, Saint Vincent served You as a permanent deacon and gave his whole life and soul to You, even to the point of becoming a martyr. I lift up to You the deacons of the Church and all those who are being called by God to become deacons. Guide them as they discern how to serve the Body of Christ. Prevent the attractions of the world and the busyness of secular jobs from interfering with their vocations. Teach them to grow in humility. Help their families learn from their examples and support their diaconates with trust and joy. Saint Vincent, pray for us. Amen.

Happy Feast Day
Saint Andrew Dung-Lac and Companions
1795-1839
Feastday: November 24
Saint Andrew Dung-Lac, a Catholic priest and missionary in Vietnam, was one of the 117 martyrs who gave their life for the faith in the 19th century. In 1832, Emperor Minh-Mang banned all foreign missionaries and tried to wipe out Christianity. Churches were destroyed, instructions forbidden, villages and families were obliterated. The tortures of these Christians are considered the worst in Church history. St Andrew was tortured, then beheaded in 1839 for the offense of being a Catholic priest.

Saint Agnes Le Thi Thanh
1781-1841
Feast Day: November 24
Saint Agnes Le Thi Thanh was the only non-clergy Vietnamese of the 117 Vietnamese martyrs canonized by Pope St. John Paul II in 1988. She was a married Catholic, mother of 6, who helped hide priests to avoid persecution during Emperor Minh Mang’s rule. In a raid to capture priests, she was arrested, savagely beaten, and tortured both physically and psychologically. Her aggressors once even put poisonous snakes in her clothes. St. Agnes stayed calm crediting Our Lady’s help and the snakes did not bite her. Her family begged her to relent and renounce her faith, but she refused and died of her wounds in prison.

Our Lady of LaVang
The Saint of Vietnam
Feast Day: November 22.
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a small group of persecuted Catholics living their faith in a jungle in Vietnam. They suffered privations, dangers, and illnesses. They recited the rosary daily and on one evening, the Blessed Mother appeared to them telling them that she fully understood their hardships. She told them, among other things, to gather the leaves from a plant that grew by them and boil their water with them to purify it. She also providently told them “From this day on prayers said on this spot will be heard and answered.” That was in 1798 and pilgrims have had answered prayers since.

Saint Cecilia
2nd century
Feast Day: November 22
Patronage: Church music, great musicians, poets, France
Cecilia's parents arranged for her to be married to Valerian of Trastevere. Because she was focused above, she is said to have interiorly sung to Jesus while her wedding music was playing. This marked the beginning of her association with music in the Church. Through her influence, her husband and his brother were converted. After they were martyred, Cecilia was martyred for refusing to partake in idol worship. She is remembered in the Canon of the Mass.
