Pray to resist Temptation

St. Romuald, was born in 956. His early life was spent in enjoyment of the world. His father forced him to fight a duel, and he had to kill his opponent and this upset him so much that he went to a monastery for forty days. Romuald stayed in the monastery. He became an abbot and later founded many houses in Tuscany. His whole life was spent in prayer to fight his great temptations. Many people tried to martyr him, but God save him. We can pray to Romuald to help us resist temptation in our lives.

St. Romuald pray for us!
