Saint Nicholas, pray for us – 

When we say we are going to pray for someone be sure that we do pray for them. Maybe at times, the words can so easily slide off our lips when we comment; I will keep you in my prayers.  Someone stopped St. Francis and Brother Leo while walking through Assisi and asked for prayers.  When the person departed, Francis said to Brother Leo, “We must stop now for a moment and pray for that person.  If we do not, we will forget by the time we arrive home.”
