Remaining faithful to our daily tasks can be very difficult, especially if we are tempted to take the easier path.
In those times, we should look up to those who have gone before us and show us an example of faithfulness.
St. Lawrence of Brindisi is an excellent example, as he was zealous in his duties and eager to fulfill the mission God marked out for him.
Here is the collect prayer for his feast that asks God for strength to fulfill our duties in life.
Lord God, you bestowed on St. Lawrence of Brindisi
the spirit of counsel and fortitude,
so that your name might be glorified and souls be saved.
At the intercession of St. Lawrence
grant that we may see what we have to do,
and, in your mercy, give us the strength to do it.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.
