Feast of Saint Paul Miki · from the Collect prayer
O God, strength of all the Saints, who through the Cross were pleased to call the Martyrs Saint Paul Miki and companions to life, grant, we pray, that by their intercession we may hold with courage even until death to the faith that we profess. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!
