Prayer to St. Margaret of Cortona

May 16, 2022

O glorious St. Margaret, you embarked
on a life of penance and poverty
after you repented of your sins.
Jesus touched your heart, and after
imposing on yourself a rigorous life of fasting,
Jesus talked and conversed with you,
revealing to you his merciful heart
that rejoices whenever a sinner returns to him.
On controlling your appetite for food,
you managed to free yourself from all temptations,
including those of the flesh
of which you were a victim for many years.
Listen then to our petitions and bring
them to Jesus.
