Great Saint Francis,
well-beloved and full of charity,
in union with you
I reverently adore the Divine Majesty.
I give thanks to God
for the singular gifts of grace
bestowed on you in life and
of glory after death,
and I beg of you,
with all the affection of my heart,
by your powerful intercession,
obtain for me the grace to live
a holy life and die a holy death.
I beg you to obtain for me …
(mention your petition).
But if what I ask is not for
the glory of God and for my
well-being, obtain for me,
I beseech you, what will
more certainly attain these ends.
