Saint for July 30

Saint Leopold Mandic

"We have in heaven the heart of a mother, The Virgin, our Mother, who at the foot of the Cross suffered as much as possible for a human creature, understands our troubles and consoles us." - Saint Leopold Mandic


O God, source of life and love, you gave Saint Leopold a tremendous compassion for sinners and a desire for church unity. Through his prayers, grant that we may acknowledge our need of forgiveness, show love to others, and strive to bring about a living unity among Christians. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Beatified on the 2nd of May 1976, by Pope Paul VI
Canonized on the 16th of October 1983, by Pope John Paul II
