Saint Benedict, Father of monks,
Pray for us and all children.

 

Lord, arouse in your Church the spirit which guided our holy father Benedict.
Fill us with that spirit and grant that we may love what he lovedand put into practice what he taught.
Help us to be steadfast in the service of your will,
that we may grow in number and holiness.
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
