Saint Bruno on the Devil

Saint Bruno
For the devil may tempt the good, but he cannot find rest in them; for he is shaken violently, and upset, and driven out, now by their prayers, now by their tears of repentance, and now by their almsgiving and similar good works.
— St. Bruno of Cologne

Prayer for Saint Bruno’s Intercession

O God, by whose gift Saint Bruno was conformed to Christ in poverty and humility, grant that, by his holy intercession we may follow your Son, and, through joyful charity, come to be united with you. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
