Prayer to
Saint Gregory the Great

O invincible defender of Holy Church's freedom,
Saint Gregory of great renown, by that firmness
you showed in maintaining the Church's rights
against all her enemies, stretch forth from heaven
your mighty arm, we beseech you, to comfort
her and defend her in the fearful battle she must
ever wage with the powers of darkness. You, in
a special manner, give strength in this dread
conflict to the venerable Pontiff who has fallen
heir not only to your throne, but likewise to the
fearlessness of your mighty heart; obtain for him
the joy of beholding his holy endeavors crowned
by the triumph of the Church and the return of
the lost sheep into the right path. Grant, finally,
that all may understand how vain it is to strive
against that faith which has always conquered and
is destined always to conquer: "this is the victory
which overcomes the world, our faith." This is the
prayer that we raise to you with one accord; and
we are confident, that, after you have heard our
prayers on earth, you will one day call us to stand
with you in heaven, before the eternal High Priest,
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit lives and
reigns world without end. Amen.
