Great Saint Francis,
well beloved and full of charity,
in union with you and reverently
I adore the Divine Trinity.
I give thanks to God
for the singular gifts of grace
bestowed on you in life and in heaven
and I ask you,
with all the affection of my heart,
by your closeness to God
to ask for me the grace to live a holy life.
I ask you to bring the intention
deep within my heart to God.
I render my intention to you, God, asking
for you to answer my prayer in a way
that is for the glory of God
and for my well-being.
St. Francis Xavier … pray for me. Amen.
