Last words of Saint Francis of Paola
O my lord Jesus Christ!
O Good Shepherd
save the just,
have mercy on all the faithful,
living and dead,
and on me,
a miserable sinner.
PRAYER FOR THE 5TH CENTENARY

God, our Father, Celebrating the 5 th centenary of the death of Saint Francis of Paola, We give you thanks for having him given to the Church as teacher and guide, protector and intercessor. Along this years many had believed in him and loving him,
They have found and felt close to you.
May you make us also able to feel the efficacy of his protection.
Grant us to take his invitation to put You in the first place always.
That journeying the way of conversion and reconciliation, as he had taught us, we can open our heart to the needs of our brothers and sisters.
And that walking all together in humility, ascesis, charity and service, resplendid virtues of his sanctity,
we can persist to build a new world, founded on justice and truth and joy a day of eternal happiness. Amen.
