A Short Act of Devotion to our Holy Father St Benedict
V. Lord open thou our lips, R. And our mouths shall show forth thy praise.
Glory be to thee O Christ our King.
Support me, O Lord, according to thy word and I shall live Let me not be disappointed in my hope.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Support me, O Lord, according to thy world and I shall live!
V. Holy Father St Benedict, our patron, pray for us: R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray: Rekindle in thy church, O Lord, the Spirit whom our holy father St Benedict followed and obeyed: filled with that same Spirit may we love what he loved and live as he taught, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
