Prayer to St. Barnabas

Dear Lord, we thank You for giving us
St. Barnabas as an example of holiness.
Help us to imitate the love of You that led him
to join the Apostles and become a Christian.

St. Barnabas, you were eager to join the Apostles
in their Christian Faith, as they began the work
of preaching the Gospel throughout the world
after Christ’s Ascension into Heaven.
You willingly gave up worldly pursuits
in order to serve God.

Pray for me, that I may be zealous and devout
in my Faith, as you were.
