I have been honored to be born n your feast day and to bear a variation of your name- a name made famous by your heroic virtues. Help me never to do anything to besmirch it. Obtain God's grace for me that I may grow in faith, hope and love, and all the virtues. Grant that by imitating you I may initiate your Lord and Master, Jesus Christ. Watch over me along the way of the rest of my life and bring me safe to my heavenly home at my death.
