St. John Newmann, servant of God and man,
your desire to bring all souls to Christ
inspired you to leave your family, home, and country.
Ask for us the grace to live worthily
in the spirit of our Baptism,
so that all our thoughts, words,
and actions of every day will bring God,
Our Father, greater honor and glory.
Ask for us the graces necessary to help
and to serve the poor,
the suffering, and the oppressed.
May we live as you lived,
persevering in every difficulty,
to know and to do God’s Holy Will.
In this life, may we share your intercession,
the protection of Mary,
and the grace of Jesus Christ,
Our Lord and Redeemer.
