PRAYER FOR THE FEAST OF SAINT HEDWIG

O God, Who didst teach blessed Hedwig to renounce the pomps of this world,
that, with her whole heart,
she might follow the humble way of Thy cross:
grant that, through her merits and example,
we may learn to trample under foot the perishable delights of this world
and by cleaving to Thy cross
overcome whatsoever may be opposed to us.
Who livest and reignest with Thee,
in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
world without end.

Amen.
