Let Us Pray


O Lord Jesus,

by the love Thou didst bear

to the virginal heart of Saint Gertrude

and by which Thou hast promised

that no sinner who would honor

and love her should die a sudden and unprovided death,

grant me, I beseech Thee, this grace,

and let me so love Thee

and repent of my sins

that with faith and confidence

I may expect a happy death.


Amen.


O God, Who in the heart of the holy virgin Gertrude

didst provide for Thyself a pleasing abode,

through her merits do Thou cleanse from our hearts

every stain of sin

and grant that we may enjoy fellowship

with her for evermore,

through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son,

Who liveth and reigneth with Thee

and the Holy Ghost, one God,

world without end.


Amen
