Daily Prayer to

Saint Francis de Sales

Feast Day:  January 24

O Blessed Francis, who in your life did excel in all virtues, especially in your love of God and of your neighbour, I earnestly ask you to take me under your immediate protection, to obtain from God my perfect conversion, and that of all sinners.

O Almighty Father, teach me how to fix my eyes on heaven, that I may generously trample under foot every obstacle that presents itself in my way, and attain that degree of glory which you in your mercy hold out to me.

Obtain also the favour for which I now pray: (State your request… ).

Assist us O Lord, we beseech you, through the merits of St. Francis de Sales that,what our endeavours cannot obtain may be given to us by his intercession.

Let us pray: O God, who for the salvation of souls, did will that St. Francis de Sales should  become all things to all men and women, mercifully grant that we, helped by the gentleness of his charity, guided by his teachings, and sharing in his merits, may obtain eternal happiness.  This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
