Imprimatur: +Thomas Edmund Molloy, S.T. D., Brooklyn, 1946


Let us Pray.


Saint Benedict Joseph, beloved of God,

lead us, poor travelers on this earth,

along thy pilgrim way to God;

shield us from all occasions of lust and pride,

that we may wear the garment of humility

in the sight of Our Lord, Jesus Christ,

and that we may be received into His everlasting kingdom.


Merciful Jesus, Who didst,

by the life of Thy servant Benedict Joseph,

show Thy love for the very least of this world,

grant to us, we beseech Thee,

the requests by which the Holy Mendicant

asks in our behalf

knowing that he deserves to obtain for us

only those things that would lead us to Thee,

through Thy Holy Poverty on earth

and Thy Divine Labours.


Amen!
