St. Gregory, you are known for your zeal
for the Catholic faith, love of liturgy,
and compassion and mercy toward those in need.
Please help and guide us
so that we may share in these virtues
and thereby bring Jesus into the hearts
of our families and all we encounter.
We especially ask for blessings on our parish family,
our priests and our deacons.
I also ask that you graciously intercede for me before God
so that I might be granted the special assistance
and graces that I seek
Help me to live as a faithful child of God
and to attain the eternal happiness of heaven.
St. Gregory the Great, pray for us.
