To the Honor of the Apostles

Thou art the Shepherd of the sheep, the Prince of the Apostles, unto thee were given the keys of the Kingdom of heaven.

V/ Thou art Peter;

R/ And upon this Rock I will build my Church

Let us pray.

Raise us up, we beseech Thee, O Lord, by the apostolic assistance of Blessed Peter, Thine Apostle; so that the weaker we are, the more mightily we may be helped by the power of his intercession: and that being perpetually defended by the same holy Apostle, we may neither yield to any iniquity, nor be overcome by any adversity. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thou art the Vessel of election, Saint Paul the Apostle, the Preacher of truth in the whole world.

V/ Pray for us, Saint Paul the Apostle,

R/ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.

Almighty and everlasting God, who, of Thy divine mercy, didst instruct Thy blessed Apostle Paul what he should do that he might be filled with the Holy Ghost; by his admonitions directing us and his merits interceding for us, grant that we may serve Thee in fear and trembling and so be filled with the comfort of Thy heavenly gifts. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
