PRAYER

If there is no proper prayer, one of the following is said:

For a pope:
All-powerful and ever living God,
you called Saint N. to guide your people
by his word and example.  
With him we pray to you:  
watch over the pastors of your Church
with the people entrusted to their care
and lead them to salvation.
We ask this...

For a bishop:
Lord God,
you counted Saint N. among your holy pastors,
renowned for faith and love which conquered evil in this world.
By the help of his prayers
keep us strong in faith and love
and let us come to share his glory.
Grant this ...

For the founder of a church:
Lord,
you called our Fathers to the light of the gospel
by the preaching of Saint N.
By his prayers help us to grow in the love and knowledge
of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

For a pastor:
God our Father,
in Saint N. you gave
a light to your faithful people.
You made him a pastor of the Church
to feed your sheep with his word
and to teach them by his example.
Help us by his prayers to keep the faith he taught
and follow the way of life he showed us.
Grant this...

Or:

Lord God,
you gave your Saint N.
the spirit of truth and love
to shepherd your people.
May we who honor him on this feast
learn from his example
and be helped by his prayers.
We ask this...

For a missionary:
God of mercy,
You gave us Saint N. to proclaim the riches of Christ.
By the help of his prayers
may we grow in knowledge of you,
be eager to do good,
and learn to walk before you
by living the truth of the gospel.
Grant this...
