Glorious St. Benedict

Columban Daily Prayer
July 11, 2023

Glorious Saint Benedict,
sublime model of all virtues,
pure vessel of God’s grace,
behold me humbly kneeling at your feet.

I implore your loving heart
to pray for me
before the throne of God.

To you I have recourse
in all the dangers
which daily surround me.

Shield me against my enemies;
inspire me to imitate you
in all things.

May your blessings
be with me always,
so that I may shun
whatever God forbids
and avoid the occasions of sin.
