Prayer to St. John the Baptist

June 23, 2022

O most zealous St. John the Baptist, who,
without working any miracle on others,
but solely by the example of your life of penance
and the power of your word,
you drew the multitudes, in order to dispose them 
to receive the Messiah worthily
and to listen to His heavenly doctrine;
grant that it may be given unto us,
by means of your example of a holy life
and the exercise of every good work,
to bring many souls to God,
but above all those souls
that are enveloped in the darkness of error
and ignorance.
