Prayer to St. Paul of the Cross


O glorious Saint Paul of the Cross, who, by meditating on the Passion of Jesus Christ, attained to so high a degree of holiness on earth and of happiness in Heaven, and, by preaching the same Passion, offered anew to the world the most certain cure for all its ills, obtain for us the grace to keep it ever deeply engraved in our hearts, that so we may be able to reap the same fruits both in time and in eternity. Amen
