Catholic Prayer: Nameday Prayer for St. John Bosco

Description:

St. John Bosco founded the Salesian Congregation for the education of boys. To decorate the page of his feastday book cake, use an eagle, a heart, or a chalice. Henri Gheon has written The Secret of St. John Bosco, it makes an ideal nameday gift.

Prayer:

JOHN BOSCO

Father: Let us pray. O God, You raised up the confessor St. John Bosco to be a father and teacher of youth and willed that by his doing and the Virgin Mary's help new families should flourish in Your Church; grant that we, being fired with the same flame of charity, may be ennobled to seek out souls and to serve only You. Through Christ, our Lord.
All: Amen. Christ conquers, Christ reigns!
