Saint Francis Xavier

stfrancisPatron Saint Of The Missions

O most kind and loving saind,
In union with you I adore teh Divine Majesty.
Remembering the favours with which God blessed you during life,
and your glory after death,
fills me with joy,
and I unite with you in offering to him my humble tribute of thanksgiving and praise.

I implore of you to secure for me,
through your powerful intercession
the all important blessing of living and dying in the state of grace.
I also beseech you to obtain the favour I ask of you
… mention it here …
but if what I ask is not for the glory of God,
or for the good of my soul,
obtain for me what is most conductive to both.

Amen

Let Us Pray

O God, who was pleased to gather into your church the peoples of the East bu the preaching and miracles of Blessed Francis, mercifully grant that we, who honour his glorious merits, may also imitate the example of his virtues, through Christ, Our Lord.

Amen

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil

Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.

Amen
