Saint Peter Claver

O God, who strengthened Saint Peter Claver with wonder, charity, and patience as he came to their help, grant, through his intercession, that, seeking the things of Jesus Christ, we may love our neighbor in deeds and in truth.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
