Prayer to St. John of Matha

Glorious St. John of Matha, you were inflamed with a great love of God and a tender compassion for your neighbor, you spent your days glorifying the mystery of the Blessed Trinity and in redeeming Christians from the most miserable slavery; obtain for us the grace to spend our lives glorifying the most blessed Trinity, and in doing good to our neighbor by works of Christian charity, so that we may enjoy in Heaven the blessed vision of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen
