O Beloved Saint Francis, gentle and poor, your obedience to God, and your simple,
deep love for all God’s creatures, led you to the heights of heavenly perfection
and turned many hearts to follow God’s will.

Now in our day, in our search for personal peace, intercede for us as we come before the Lord with our special requests…

May your prayers on our behalf be heard and may God grant us the grace to lead good and faithful lives. Amen.

Say: Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…
