Lord of Justice, because Saint Waldetrudis came from a very holy family and had a good marriage with saintly children, her neighbors grew jealous, and to bring her down, they claimed that she only appeared to be holy in order to cover up some hidden sins. Since You knew the truth, she did not defend herself. I ask Saint Waldetrudis to pray about the injustices committed against me—the gossip, the slander, the prejudices, and the wrong impressions. Lord, be my Defender. Give me strength to resist fighting back. Help me to see these trials as opportunities for more spiritual growth. Amen. (GoodNews Ministries)
