Prayer for the Intercession of Blessed Margaret of Castello

Dear God, thank You for the gift of life that You have given me. I am sorry for the times when I have failed to recognize the value and sacredness of life in others.

Bl. Margaret, you were often looked at differently because of your physical disabilities. These disabilities didn’t stop you from living a life centered on Christ. Help me to see beyond labels, so that I may see each person for who they are. Pray that I might accept every part of myself, including my physical appearance, as part of God’s beautiful creation. Amen.
