As we begin a new week, perhaps by this prayer to St. John the Baptist we will obtain the strength to face all the week’s challenges in a courageous, Christian manner.

St. John the Baptist, pray for us!

St. John the Baptist, pray for us!

Let us pray.

Unconquered martyr, St. John the Baptist, who for the honor of God and the salvation of souls did, with heroic constancy, and at the cost of life itself, withstand the impious Herod, reproving him openly for his bad and dissolute life: obtain for us a brave and generous heart, so that, overcoming all human respect, we may boldly profess our faith, and follow the teaching of our divine master Jesus Christ, who is Lord for ever and ever. Amen.
