Prayer To Saint Catherine Of Siena # 2
O marvelous wonder of the Church,
seraphic virgin, Saint Catherine,
because of thine extraordinary virtue
and the immense good
which thou didst accomplish for the Church and society,
thou art acclaimed and blessed by all people.
O blessed Catherine,
turn thy benign countenance towards me,
who confident of thy powerful patronage
call upon thee with all the ardor of affection
and I beg thee to obtain by thy prayers
the favors I so ardently desire
(mention your request).
Thou wast a victim of charity,
who in order to benefit thy neighbor
obtained from God the most stupendous miracles
and became the joy and the hope of all;
thou canst not help but hear the prayers
of those who fly to thy heart,
that heart which thou didst receive
from the Divine Redeemer in a celestial ecstasy.
O seraphic virgin,
show once again proof of thy power
and of thy flaming charity,
so that thy name shall ever be blessed and exalted;
grant that we,
having experienced thy most efficacious intercession here on earth,
may come one day to thank thee in Heaven
and enjoy eternal happiness with thee.
