Prayer to St. Cajetan

August 7, 2022

O glorious St. Cajetan,
you studied to be a lawyer,
but when you felt that the Lord
was calling you to his service,
you abandoned everything
and became a priest.
You excelled in virtues,
shunning all material rewards for your labor,
helping the many unemployed
people of your time.
Look on us with mercy at a time
when many people wish to find employment
so our families can live with dignity.
Listen to our petitions, dear saint;
you, who could easily give up
the food on your table for the needy,
bring our petitions to Jesus.
