Feast of St. Paul VI, Pope

Columban Daily Prayer
May 29, 2021

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the witness of Your Servant,
Saint Paul VI, who served You and the Church
as Universal Pastor in difficult times.

As a pilgrim among pilgrims
he sought to reveal the beauty and joy of the Gospel
to the men and women of his time,
choosing the way of gentleness and forbearance.

As Shepherd of the flock
he sought to proclaim the truth in a time of great confusion
in imitation of his patron the Apostle to the Gentiles.

As Servant he proclaimed the Gospel of Life
and in doing so bore the cross of suffering and isolation
in union with Your Crucified Son
becoming a Prophet in the midst of the growing culture of death.
Hear our prayers, most Merciful Father,
and grant them through the intercession of Saint Paul.
