Prayer to St. Peter Claver

September 9, 2023

O God, You called St. Peter Claver,
to minister to the slaves of West Africa 
that he might help them survive, and 
blessed him with marvelous patience and charity.
Now, listen to his prayers on our behalf, 
grant that we seek only the things 
which are of Jesus Christ, and thereby 
love our neighbor in deed and in truth.
Through the same Christ our Lord,
who with You and the Holy Spirit 
lives and reigns forever and ever
