You have given the saints in heaven eternal happiness
and they now live in the fullness of your glory.
Because of their holy love for you,
they also care about me and my family,
my friends, my church, and my neighbors.
Thank you for the gift of their friendship
and the witness of their holy lives.
I ask our patron saints and every saint
who has become especially dear to me
to intercede for us.
I ask them to help us journey safely
on the narrow path that leads to heaven.
O Lord, give us their protection.
Grant us their assistance
in overcoming temptation
and gaining the fullness
of life with you.
