St. Sharbel of Lebanon

Today's saint is one to invoke for his own homeland: St. Sharbel was a Lebonese monk, the Padre Pio of his time (1828-1898), noted for mystical phenomena. The prayer for his feast day is perfect for the situation in Lebanon today:
All-powerful God,
hear the prayers of St. Sharbel Makluf.
Increase your gifts within us and give us peace in our days.
