Holy Omer

Holy Omer was born towards 590; he accepted a solid Christian education and lived a long time with the monastery of Luxeuil where he built the monks by his fasts, his piety, corporal punishments that it was necessary and the miracles which were not long in being the fruit of a so holy life.
He was named bishop of Thérouanne and applied, the remainder of his life, to convert the many pagan ones of his diocese. He died into 670 and of many miracles took place with his tomb.One calls upon especially Holy Omer to obtain the cure of the chronic constipations.

INVOCATION
Ô God, who, to propagate the greatest glory of your name, by happy Holy Omer, gave to the Church the force of a new help, made that all that is attached to the memory of your saints us is so expensive that it’s for us a source of blessings and encouragement to imitate them. We request some from you by NR. – S.J. – C. Amen.
Holy Omer, be favourable and cure us of any disastrous disease to us.

SPEECH
Because you came to introduce us into your kingdom, and you showed us the way by where we can there arrive.
But why do we scorn this way? Why don’t we walk to your continuation? Why do we so ardently wish the magnificence and glory? Why do we like the trifles and the perishable goods of this world? It’s because our kingdom is always of this world, and that we don’t look at ourselves like foreigners. Foolish how we are! Why do we take the forgery for truth, which passes for solid, the goods of time for those of eternity, and why we attach us to it so strongly?
Certainly, Ô Lord! If, raising our spirit, we considered attentively that necks sums only travellers, we would not make use of all these visible things, that as much as the need requires it, and we would hasten to follow you. These perishable things would not be any more one burden for us, and let us scorn we them, as if they had already passed. Amen.
