Prayers to St. Gaspar

Prayer to Saint Gaspar Apostle of the Precious Blood

Most loving Saint Gaspar, by that tender affection with which you cherished the mystery of our redemption, and by that ardent zeal with which you gave yourself to the conversion of sinners, and the salvation of souls, obtain for us from the Lord, we beseech you, a spirit of true penance; so that wholly cleansed in the Blood of Jesus Christ, we may be saved; and may receive those graces which through your intercession we humbly implore. Amen.

 

Prayer to St. Gaspar for the Church

Saint Gaspar, you loved the persecuted Church, and in the name of God you accepted disgrace and exile. We beg your intercession for the Church today; help us discern how we are to live and promote the message of the Gospel. United with you, may our hearts have compassion for the poor and abandoned. Increase our love for the Blood of Christ, so that we also may be prepared to risk our lives.

We thank God for your good works and example. Strengthen our union with you that we may not weaken, but grow stronger in our vocation to the honor of God and the salvation of souls. Amen.
