Prayer to Saint Ursula
You had the courage and leadership
To gather others to yourself
And unite them in love and discipleship
Of Jesus our Lord and Savior.
May we be witness of prayer and devotion to Christ;
Of Christian service and unity in discipleship.
When we encounter resentment and ill will,
May we meet it with courage and unswerving faith.
Together may we honor and serve
The Christ for whom you died
And for whom we live.
Intercede for us
To this Jesus whom we all love.
Prayer For The Feast Of
Saint Ursula and Companion,
O God, Who hast granted to the virgins
Worthily consecrated to Thee,
The courage to face,
With Ursula as their leader,
A wonderful fight whereby through the palm of martyrdom
They reached the glory of Heavenly contemplation,
We beseech Thee
Grant that we may be aided by the prayer
Of those who in this day after
Passing through the gates of death,
Thou has made to triumph in Heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who liveth and reigneth with God the Father,
In the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God,
World without end.
