Prayer to Pope St. Gregory VII

O invincible defender of Holy Church's freedom Saint Gregory of great renown, by that firmness thou didst show in maintaining the Church's rights against all her enemies, stretch forth from heaven thy mighty arm, we beseech thee, to comfort her and defend her in the fearful battle she must ever wage with the powers of darkness. Do thou, in an especial manner, give strength in this dread conflict to the venerable Pontiff who has fallen heir not only to thy throne, but likewise to the fearlessness of thy mighty heart; obtain for him the joy of beholding his holy endeavors crowned by the triumph of the Church and the return of the lost sheep into the right path. Grant, finally, that all may understand how vain it is to strive against that faith which has always conquered and is destined always to conquer: 'this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith.' This is the prayer that we raise to thee with one accord; and we are confident, that, after thou hast heard our prayers on earth, thou wilt one day call us to stand with thee in heaven, before the eternal High Priest, who with the Father and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth world without end.

Prayer to Pope St. Pius V

The scourge of war is on us, for the worship of God is despised: the chastisement that avenges guilt is menacing our earth. In this peril, which of the heavenly citizens can we better invoke in our defense than thee, O Pius? O blessed Pontiff! No mortal ever labored with such zealous vigor to promote God's glory on earth as thou didst; No mortal ever struggled, as thou didst, to free Christian lands from the yoke which barbarians were seeking to put upon them. Thy power is greater now that thou art in heaven: look upon us thy clients! Restrain civil discord and repel our enemies. May thy prayers bring golden peace upon the earth; that in calm security we may sing our canticles to God with a gladder heart. To thee, O Blessed Trinity, one God, be glory, praise and power, for ever and ever. Amen. (Hymn, St. Mary Major)

Obtain for me likewise a fervent and lasting love of Jesus, and a tender and childlike devotion to Mary, together with the grace to pray without ceasing and to persevere in the service of God even to the end of my life, that so I may finally be united with thee in praising God and most holy Mary through all eternity.

Thou who wast so gracious unto poor sinners regard not the lack of merit on the part of him who calls upon thee, but consider the glory of God, which will be exalted once more through thee, to the salvation of my soul and the granting of the petition that I now make with such ardent yearning. As a pledge of my gratitude, I beg thee to accept my promise to live henceforth more agreeably to the teachings of the Gospel, and to be devoted to the service of the poor whom thou didst ever love and still does love so greatly; bless this my resolution and obtain for me the grace to be faithful thereto even until death.

Prayer to St. Benedict Joseph Labre

O wondrous pattern of Christian perfection, Saint Benedict Joseph, from thy earliest use of reason even to thy dying day, thou didst keep unspotted the white robe of innocence, and, forsaking all things and becoming a pilgrim on earth, thou didst gain naught therefrom save only suffering, privations and reproaches. Miserable sinner that I am, I kneel at thy feet, and return thanks to the infinite goodness of the Most High God who hath willed to imprint on thee the living likeness of His crucified Son. At the same time I am filled with confusion when I consider how different is my life from thine. Do thou, beloved Saint, have pity on me! Offer thy merits before the throne of the Eternal, and obtain for me the grace to follow thine example and to direct my actions according to the precepts and teachings of our divine Master: thus let me learn to love His sufferings and His humiliations, and to despise the pleasures and honors of earth: so that neither the fear of the former, nor the desire of the later may ever induce me to transgress his holy law. May I merit in this manner to be acknowledged by Him and numbered amongst the blessed of his Father. Amen. (Raccolta)

Prayer to St. Elizabeth (Widow)

Dear Saint Elizabeth, chosen vessel of the highest virtues, thou didst show to the world, by thy shining example, what things can be wrought in a Christian soul by charity, faith and humility. Thou didst make use of all the powers of thy soul in loving thy God alone; thou didst love Him with a love so pure and fervent that thou wast made worthy to enjoy upon earth a foretaste of those heavenly favors and blessings that are bestowed upon the souls invited to the marriage of the adorable Lamb of God. Illuminated by supernatural light and resolute faith, thou didst show thyself to be a true child of the Gospel, giving refreshment to Jesus Christ in the person of thy neighbor and making Him the only object of thy love. Hence, thou didst find all thy joy in conversing with the poor and needy, serving them, wiping away all tears from their eyes, consoling them and assisting them with all manner of kindly offices in sickness and in the other miseries to which our human nature is subject. Thou thyself becamest poor in order to relieve poverty in thy neighbor: poor, that is to say, in the goods of this world, in order to be made rich in the goods of heaven. So great was thy humility that thou didst exchange thy royal throne for a miserable hovel, and thy queenly attire for the lowly habit of the seraphic St. Francis; thou didst, moreover, subject thyself, though sinless, to a life of privation and penance, and didst embrace with holy joy the Cross of our divine Savior, accepting gladly, after His divine example, the insults and unjust persecutions of thy fellow-men. In such wise didst thou forget thy world and thyself in order to remember God alone. O most amiable Saint, the object of God's predilection, vouchsafe to protect our souls and help us to become ever more acceptable to Jesus. From the heights of heaven, turn thy pitying eyes upon us, thine eyes one look of which sufficed on earth to heal the most distressing maladies of thy people. In this our age, which is so wicked and corrupt, so indifferent to the things of God, we run to thy protection with the utmost confidence that thou wilt obtain for us from our Lord light for our minds, and strength for our wills, thereby enabling us to attain to true peace of soul. Defend and guard us in our perilous journey through life; intercede for the pardon and remission of all our sins; and reveal to us the way whereby we may enter with thee into the possession of the kingdom of God. Amen. (Raccolta)

Bright jewel of the Order of Saint Benedict, illustrious Saint Frances of Rome, thou who was led by divine Providence through various stations in life, that thou mightest be a pattern of every virtue, to maidens, to matrons, and to widows, pray for us to our divine Savior that we may be detached from the vanities of the world and may be able, under the guiding hand of our Guarding Angel, to grow daily in the love of God, of His Church, and of our neighbor, and finally to be made partakers in heaven of thy felicity.

Prayer to St. Francis of Assisi

O glorious Saint Francis, who, even in thy youth, with a generous heart didst renounce the comfort and ease of thy father's house in order to follow Jesus more closely in His humility and poverty, in His mortification and passionate love of the Cross, and didst thereby merit to behold the miraculous Stigmata impressed upon thy flesh and to bear them about with thee, obtain for us also, we pray, the grace of passing through our life here below, as though insensible to the ephemeral splendor of all earthly possessions, with our hearts constantly beating with love of Jesus Crucified even in the darkest and saddest hours of life and with our eyes ever serenely raised toward heaven, as though already enjoying a foretaste of the eternal possession of the infinite Good with His divine and everlasting joys.

Prayer to St. Joachim (1)

O Joachim, father of the sovereign Maiden, who in all purity gave birth to God, present to our Lord our petitions and our chaste desires. Thou knowest by what angry waves we are here tossed, whom the cruel sea of this world wearies out: thou knowest how many battles Satan and the flesh prepare for us. Now that thou art united to the holy companies in heaven, or rather art placed at their head, thou canst do all if thou wilt: for rightly neither Jesus thy Grandson nor Mary thy daughter can deny thee aught. Obtain by thy prayer that our blessed God may give us pardon and peace: that united with thee we may sweetly sing canticles to Him. Amen. (Ancient Hymn)

Prayer to St. Joachim (2)

O great and glorious Patriarch, Saint Joachim, what joy is mine when I consider that thou wast chosen among all God's holy ones to assist in the fulfillment of the mysteries of God, and to enrich our earth with the great Mother of God, Mary most holy! By this singular privilege, thou hast become most powerful with both the Mother and her Son, so as to be able to obtain for us the graces that are needful to us; with great confidence I have recourse to thy mighty protection and I commend to thee all my needs and those of my family, both spiritual and temporal; and especially do I entrust to thy keeping the particular favor that I desire and look for from thy fatherly intercession. And since thou wast a perfect pattern of the interior life, obtain for me the grace of interior recollection and a spirit of detachment from the transitory goods of this life, together with a lively and enduring love for Jesus and Mary. Obtain for me in like manner a sincere devotion and obedience to Holy Church and the Sovereign Pontiff who rules over her: to the end that I may live and die in faith and hope and perfect charity, ever invoking the holy Names of Jesus and Mary, and may I thus be saved.

Prayer to St. Joachim (3)

O great Patriarch, Saint Joachim, deserving by thy singular virtue to be chosen of old by divine Providence to give to the world that immaculate Queen, in whom all nations were to be blessed, and who, in her virginal bosom, was to bear the Savior of the human race: we who are thy devout clients rejoice with thee in this thy great privilege, and implore thee to extend thy special protection to ourselves and our families. Do not, dear Saint, suffer the devil and sin to find a place in our hearts, nor the false maxims of the world to lead us astray; permit us not to live unmindful of eternity, for which we have been created. Obtain for us from God a firm and unshaken faith in opposition to the impieties and errors which are ever being spread abroad by the enemies of Holy Church and the Apostolic See; a sincere and constant devotion to the Vicar of Jesus Christ, the Roman Pontiff; and an unfailing courage in refuting calumnies against those things which are most sacred and venerable in our holy religion. Do thou, who art powerful by reason of that love which thy holy daughter Mary bears toward thee, assist the cause of the Church, gain for her the victory for which she sighs, scatter the powers of darkness, destroy their pride and grant that the light of the true faith may shine resplendent in all minds. Grant us, above all, a tender and filial devotion to thy beloved daughter and our Mother, Mary most holy, so that we, honoring her daily with our devout homage, may be made worthy to be numbered by her amongst her children; and after the miseries of this exile may be brought to praise and bless the mercy of God forever in heaven.

O glorious Saint John of the Cross, great Doctor of the Church, who, from very longing to be configured to Jesus crucified, didst desire nothing more ardently, even to the last moment of thy holy life, than to suffer and to be despised and rejected of all men; and so great was thy thirst for suffering, that thy generous heart was filled with joy in the midst of most painful torments and afflictions; I beseech thee, dear Saint, by the glory thou didst merit by thy manifold sufferings, intercede for me with Almighty God and obtain for me love of suffering, together with grace and strength to endure all tribulations and adversities with dauntless courage; for these are the sure means of coming into the possession of that crown of glory which is prepared for me in heaven.

Prayer to St. John the Apostle (Priests) 

Let us rejoice with thee, blessed John, who, by a privilege of special love, wast honored by Christ Jesus above all the other disciples: being held worthy to recline upon His bosom at the Last Supper, and to be entrusted with His holy Mother at the hour of His death. We know that thou didst deserve this on account of thy special gift of chastity; because, being chosen as a virgin by our Lord, thou didst remain a virgin for ever. Accordingly, since thou didst imbibe the living streams of the Gospel from its very source, the bosom of our Lord, thou didst speak more fully and more sublimely of the divinity of Christ; and since thou didst catch thy flame of love from the fire burning in His Sacred Heart, we do not wonder that thou wast the only disciple to accompany Jesus in His Passion, and thereafter didst write such burning words that thou art rightly called 'the Apostle of love.' Moreover, it behooves us, who are the ministers of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God, by the gift of His goodness, to lift our eyes to thee, who hast been set before us as an example for our imitation: it is likewise meet, and we ask it of thee in great humility, that thou wouldest assist us as our own special Patron before Jesus and Mary. Grant us, therefore, to walk worthy of the vocation wherewith we are called; in particular that we may perform our priestly tasks with due purity of mind and body; fired with zeal for the glory of God, may we attain to intimate fellowship with the Heart of Jesus, and console the most holy Virgin, who was given from the Cross to be a Mother to all of us after thee, by the kindly offices of our ardent affection, even as thou didst do. Finally grant, that after this mortal life we may be numbered with the elders, whom thou didst see clothed in white raiment and sitting round the throne of the spotless Lamb, Who is worthy to receive honor, blessing and glory for endless ages. Amen. (Raccolta)

For us too, obtain the grace of being ever docile to the voice of the Supreme Pontiff, that as we may never allow ourselves to indulge in the reading of bad books, but may seek instead to read and, so far as it is given to us, to diffuse those books which by their salutary doctrine shall assist all of us to promote the greater glory of God, the exaltation of His Church and the salvation of souls.
