St. Francis

Almighty, eternal, just and merciful God, give us the ability to act in accordance with our knowledge of your will and to desire always what pleases you.

Cleanse and enlighten our hearts and enkindle in us the fire of the Holy Spirit, that we may follow in the footsteps of our Lord Jesus Christ your beloved Son, and with your grace alone make our way to you, Most High.

You who live and reign in perfect Trinity and simple Unity, glorified and all-powerful God, now and forever.

Amen.
