Strengthen them to combat every evil.Pray that God will raise up courageous and honorable civil leaders who will enact laws respecting the dignity of human life and enforce them with justice, truth, and charity.
Pray for all faithful men and women that they will live virtuous and peaceful lives as they journey toward their final goal of Heaven.
Pray that all children may keep their baptismal innocence and be spared from every evil.
Pray that the sanctity of human life will be forever respected. Pray for an increase in holy vocations to the priesthood and religious life.And Saint Louis, as you have left your earthly throne to assume your heavenly throne, pray that we will one day share with you the eternal crown of salvation after our earthly lives are ended. Amen.
