Saint Padre Pio
May Jesus comfort you 
in all your afflictions. 
May He sustain you in dangers, 
watch over you always with His grace, 
and indicate the safe path 
that leads to eternal salvation. 
And may He render you always 
dearer to His Divine Heart 
and always more worthy of Paradise.   
Amen. 

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
