Repeat this prayer for nine days…
Glorious Saint Alphonsus,
Bishop, Confessor, and Doctor of the Church,
devoted servant of our Lord and loving child of Mary,
I invoke you as a saint in heaven.
I give myself to you that you may always be my father,
my protector, and my guide
in the way of holiness and salvation.
Aid me in observing the duties of my state of life.
Obtain for me great purity of heart
and a fervent love of the interior life
after your own example.
Great lover of the Blessed Sacrament
and the Passion of Jesus Christ,
teach me to love Holy Mass and Holy Communion
as the source of all grace and holiness,
and to receive this Sacrament as often as I can.
Give me a tender devotion
to the Passion of my Crucified Redeemer.
Promoter of the truth of Christ
in your preaching and writing,
give me a greater knowledge and appreciation
of the Divine truths.
Gentle father of the poor and sinners
help me to imitate your charity
toward my fellowmen in word and deed.
Consoler of the suffering,
help me to bear my daily cross patiently
in imitation of your own patience in your long illness
and to resign myself to the will of God.
Good Shepherd of the flock of Christ,
obtain for me the grace of being a true child of Holy Mother Church.
I humbly implore your powerful intercession
for obtaining from the Divine Heart of Jesus
all the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare.
I recommend to you in particular this favor,
I have great confidence in your prayers.
I earnestly trust that if it is God’s holy will,
my petition will be granted through your intercession for me
at the throne of God.
Saint Alphonsus, pray for me and for those I love, I beg of you,
by your love for Jesus and Mary,
do not abandon us in our needs.
May we experience the peace and joy of your holy death.
In thanksgiving to God
for the graces bestowed on Saint Alphonsus:
Say 3 Our Father…
Say 3 Hail Mary…
Say 3 Glory Be…
