St. Gideon

I missed this one, so I’m post-dating it:

September 26

The commemoration of St. Gideon, of the tribe of Manassa, who was a judge in Israel and who, when he had received from the Lord the sign of dew that descended on a fleece, and having destroyed the altar of Baal, liberated the people of Israel from the hand of their enemies by the strength of God.


May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

V. Precious in the sight of the Lord

R. Is the death of his holy ones.

V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.  And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in pace.

R. Amen
