Our Lord, our Father,
through the Holy Father Saint Joseph of Anchieta,
you have evangelized our Brazil.
He loved the poor and those who suffered.
It softened and healed his ills,
and he knew how to be in solidarity with the Indians,
helping them to know and love you
in their own language and customs.
For this reason, beloved Father,
through the intercession
of the holy Father Saint José de Anchieta,
whom I admire and cherish,
I come to You
to pray for the favour that I need…
(Make your request here…),
strengthened by the affectionate
and effective mediation of Our Lady,
Which he also greatly loved throughout his life.
Say 1 Our Father…
Say 1 Hail Mary…
Say 1 Glory Be…
ACT OF LOVE FOR A POOR OR NEEDY PERSON.
O My God,
I love you above all things,
with my whole heart and soul,
because you are all-good and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you.
I forgive all who have injured me,
and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
