Prayer To Saint Rose de Lima # 5 (My Patron Saint)
Saint Rose, whom I have chosen as my special patron,
pray for me that I too, may one day,
glorify the Blessed Trinity in Heaven.
Obtain for me your lively faith,
that I may consider all persons, things,
and events in the light of almighty God.
Pray, that I may be generous
in making sacrifices of temporal things
to promote my eternal interests,
as you so wisely did.
Set me on fire with a love for Jesus,
that I may thirst for His sacraments
and burn with zeal for the spread of His kingdom.
By your powerful intercession,
help me in the performance of my duties to God,
myself and all the world.
Win for me the virtue of purity
and a great confidence in the Blessed Virgin.
Protect me this day,
and every day of my life.
Keep me from mortal sin.
Obtain for me the grace of a happy death.
