O most kind and loving saint,
in union with you I adore the most divine majesty.
The memory of the favours with which God blessed you during life,
and of your glory after death,
fills me with joy.
And I unite with you in offering to him
my humble tribute of thanksgiving and praise.
I implore of you to secure for me,
through your powerful intercession,
the all-important blessing of living and dying in a state of grace.
I also ask you to obtain the favour I ask in this novena.
But if what I ask is not for the greater glory of God,
or the good of my soul,
obtain for me what is most conducive to both.
