Catholic Prayer: Collect for the Feast of St. Evaristus, Pope and Martyr
O Eternal Shepherd, who appointed blessed Evaristus shepherd of the whole Church, let the prayers of this martyr and supreme pontiff move you to look with favor upon your flock and to keep it under your continual protection. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who lives and reigns with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.
