O holy Apostle who, with your doctrine and with your charity, has taught the entire world, look kindly upon us your children and disciples.
We expect everything from your prayers to the Divine Master and to Mary, Queen of the Apostles.
Grant, O Doctor of the Gentiles, that we live in faith, that we save ourselves through hope, and that charity alone reign in us. Obtain for us, O Vessel of election, docile correspondence to divine grace, so that it may not remain unfruitful in us. Grant that we may better know you, love you, and imitate you, that we may be living members of the Church, the mystical body of Jesus Christ.
Raise up many and holy apostles. Breathe over the world the warm breath of true charity. Grant that all men may know and glorify God and the Divine Master, the Way, Truth, and Life.
And You, Lord Jesus, know that we do not have any faith in our own strength; in Your mercy, then, grant that we may be defended against all adversity through the powerful intercession of St. Paul, our teacher and father.
