Prayer to Saint Catherine of Alexandria, VM

O glorious Saint Catherine, wise and prudent virgin, thou
who didst set the knowledge of Jesus Christ above all
other knowledge, obtain for us the grace to remain
inviolably attached to the Catholic faith, and to seek in our
studies and in our teaching only the extension of the
Kingdom of Jesus Christ our Lord and of His Holy Church
both in ourselves and in the souls of others. Amen.

Prayer to Saint John of the Cross, CD

O glorious Saint John of the Cross, great Doctor of the
Church, who, from very longing to be configured to Jesus
crucified, didst desire nothing more ardently, even to the
last moment of thy holy life, than to suffer and to be
despised and rejected of all men; and so great was thy
thirst for suffering, that thy generous heart was filled with
joy in the midst of most painful torments and afflictions; I
beseech thee, dear Saint, by the glory thou didst merit by
thy manifold sufferings, intercede for me with Almighty
God and obtain for me love of suffering, together with
grace and strength to endure all tribulations and adversities
with dauntless courage; for these are the sure means of
coming into the possession of that crown of glory which is
prepared for me in heaven. Ah yes, dear Saint, from that
high and glorious throne where thou sittest triumphant,
hear, I beseech thee, my earnest entreaties, that, following
thee, I may become a lover of the Cross and of suffering
and thus may merit to be thy companion in glory. Amen.
