O most holy Confessor of the Lord, Benedict, father and guide of monks, intercede for our salvation and that of everyone.
Lord, God of armies, convert us.
Show us Thy Face and we shall be saved.
Let us pray.
Awaken, O Lord, in Thy Church the Spirit that our blessed FAther Saint Benedict obeyed, so that, filled with the same Spirit we may strive to love what he loved and practice what he taught.
Grant us the grace to persevere in the service of Thy will, so that our days may see the people of Thy servants grow in merit and number.
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
