O Glorious St. Bartholomew,
Jesus called you a person without guile
and you saw in this word a sign
that he was the Son of God and King of Israel.
Obtain for us the grace to be
ever guileless and innocent as doves.
At the same time, help us to have
your gift of faith to see the Divine hand
in the events of daily life.
May we discern the signs of the times
that lead to Jesus on earth
and will eventually unite us
to him forever in heaven.
