Let us pray

By the work of your bishop Saint Finian, Lord

you formed a multitude of Saints

in the knowledge of the Gospel

and in the monastic life;

in our own day raise up, we pray, at his intercession,

Saints to edify your people

by the vitality of their Christian lives.

Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, forever and ever.
