Prayer to Paul As Your Patron Saint

Saint Paul, whom I have chosen as my special patron, pray for me that I, too, may one day glorify the Blessed Trinity in heaven. Obtain for me your lively faith, that I may consider all persons, things, and events in the light of almighty God. Pray, that I may be generous in making sacrifices of temporal things to promote my eternal interests, as you so wisely did.

Set me on fire with a love for Jesus, that I may thirst for His sacraments and burn with zeal for the spread of His kingdom. By your powerful intercession, help me in the performance of my duties to God, myself and all the world.

Win for me the virtue of purity and a great confidence in the Blessed Virgin. Protect me this day, and every day of my life. Keep me from mortal sin. Obtain for me the grace of a happy death. Amen

Responsory of St. Paul

All ye who groan beneath

A load of ills oppress’d,

Entreat St. Paul, and he will pray

The Lord to give you rest.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

Pierced by the flame of love,

Descending from on high,

‘Twas Thine to preach the faith which once

Thou soughtest to destroy.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

Nor toil, nor threatened death,

Nor tempest, scourge, nor chain,

Could from the assembly of the saints

Thy loving heart detain.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To thee for help we sue.

Oh, by that quenchless love

Which burnt in Thee of yore,

Take pity on our miseries,

Our fainting hope restore.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

True champion of the Lord,

Crush Thou the schemes of hell,

And with adoring multitudes

Thy sacred temples fill.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

Through Thy prevailing prayer

May charity abound;

Sweet charity, which knows no ill,

Which nothing can confound.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

To earth’s remotest shores

May one same faith extend;

And Thy epistles through all climes

Their blessed perfume send.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

Grant us the will and power

To serve Thee, God of might,

Lest, wavering still and unprepared,

We sink in depths of night.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.

Praise to the Father be;

Praise to the Son who rose;

Praise to the Spirit Paraclete;

While age on ages flows.

O victim dear to Heaven!

O Paul, Thou teacher true!

Thou love and joy of Christendom,

To Thee for help we sue.
