The Radiant Vision Of St Cajetan On Christmas Eve


St Cajetan receives the newly born Christ Child from the hands of his spotless Mother.

At the very hour of his most holy birth, I drew close to the crib, and given strength by my beloved father, Blessed Jerome, who was devoted to the holy crib, and with the confidence that he gave to me, I received from the hands of the spotless Virgin, my protectress, who had recently become a mother,
the Holy Infant, Word Incarnate. 
The fact that my heart did not stop and melt, pierced through by divine love is a sign that it must be as hard and unfeeling as a diamond. 
(from a letter from St Cajetan to Sister Laura Mignani 28th January 1528)

Saint Cajetan, Helper in Difficulties


As Christians we have a father in God, a Mother in the Blessed Virgin
and friends in all God's Holy Saints.

Let us have recourse to these heavenly friends in
our times of trouble since they are so anxious to help us.

The World is in trouble because for too long money has been its only god and the only place to which it has looked for help. Where then charity, mercy, love and hope?
These all can be found in the examples of the Saints
who we are called to emulate in our daily lives.
Imagine a world where charity, mercy, love and hope ruled
instead of greed and self-interest, what a paradise of peace!

O Glorious St Cajetan, Father of Divine Providence, help all those who are unemployed, who search for employment and who fear for their jobs, lead them towards what they are looking for and pray for us all that we may be courageous in the face of adversity.

7 Monthly Commemoration of St Cajetan/Conmemoracion mensual de San Cayetano 7


Our Lady Of The Rosary Pray For Us!


St Cajetan Pray For Us!


On the 7th October 1571 at Lepanto, a Christian fleet faced the overwhelmingly superior fleet of the Ottoman Empire.
The Ottomans were at the peak of their naval power in the Mediterranean and threatened to overrun Christian Europe and in this extremity Pope Pius V formed a league against them. The Christian fleet, furnished by Venice, Genoa, and Spain was commanded by Don Juan of Austria.
As early as September 17, Pope Pius enjoined the recitation of the Rosary on all Christendom for the success of the Christian arms. He had ordered all the churches to have the Forty Hours Devotion, with public processions and recitation of the Rosary. On that fateful October 7th, he himself spent the entire night in prayer.
Before moving to the attack at Lepanto the Christian sailors devoutly recited the Rosary while the Papal Legate gave the Apostolic Benediction to them. For three hours, the sixty-five thousand men, all of whom had received Holy Communion that morning, continued to recite the Rosary. Then on each ship general absolution was given for the last time by one of the chaplains. The attack began. The wind which had been against the Christians, suddenly dropped. The battle raged until late in the afternoon, when the Turks gave way. The victory gave the naval power of the enemy a blow from which it never recovered and ended their threat in the Mediterranean Sea.
Ever since the 7th October has been celebrated as the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary in gratitude for that victory.


So faced by huge odds the Chrsitian army knelt in prayer, confident in God's loving Providence, and then fought  with tremendous courage and with an unshakeable trust and faith that God would help them. It must be remembered that courage is not the absence of fear, far from it, it is in fact the overcoming of fear and the tackling of any given problem despite that fear.
So we are provided with an example of men who faced with overwhelmingly massive odds and gripped by fear, fought for what they prayed for.
Today we are faced by massive odds as well, we perhaps feel powerless against a world situation which seems to get bleaker by the day and it is very difficult not to feel unsettled. BUT we should follow the example of those men at Lepanto and have courage, pray and then go to work with a strong will and a faith in God's Holy Providence. Because if everyone pulled together and boldly redoubled their efforts to work their way out of the present situation then that situation will indeed diminish and eventually disappear through sheer hard work. On the other hand if we allow ourselves to be paralysed by fear then the situation will only get worse.
St Cajetan on his monthly day of commemoration asks us to have hope and to trust in God's bounty, to look to the future and not to surrender to our doubts and fears.


O Glorious St Cajetan, Father of Divine Providence, help all those who are unemployed, who search for employment and who fear for their jobs, lead them towards what they are looking for and pray for us all that we may be courageous in the face of adversity.

Our Lady Of Guadalupe



Listen, put it into your heart, most little of my sons:
Let nothing frighten or grieve you,
let not your heart be disturbed,
do not fear any sickness or anguish.
Am I not here, who am your Mother?
Are you not under my protection?
Am I not your health?
Are you not happily within the folds of my mantle,
held safely in my arms?
Do you need anything more?
Let nothing else worry you, disturb you
.

The words of Our Lady of Guadalupe to St Juan Diego
December 1531

A Supplication

O San Cayetano, Padre de Providencia
Otorganos a diario tu milagrosa asistencia
Oh God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry; when I have work, help me remember the jobless; when I have a warm home, help me to remember the homeless; when I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer; and in remembering, help me to destroy my complacency and bestir my compassion. Make me concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen

Conmemoracion mensual de San Cayetano/Monthly commemoration of St Cajetan


Glorioso San Cayetano, Padre de Providencia
Otorganos a diario tu milagrosa asistencia!



"Dios, todopoderoso y eterno, que diste a san Cayetano una admirable confianza en tu Providencia, un total desasimiento de las cosas de la tierra y una abundancia de dones del cielo, concede a los que hoy veneramos su memoria, sentir la ayuda de tu Providencia y tender, sin desmayo, a las realidades del cielo. Amén."

All powerful & eternal God, who gave St Cajetan a wonderful confidence in your Providence, a total rejection of the things of the world and an abundance of heavenly gifts, permit us who today venerate his memory, to feel the help of your Divine Providence, and to cling to the things of heaven without faltering. Amen

On the 7th day of every month is celebrated a mini feast of St Cajetan, a feast of faith and hope in Divine Providence. A day for special reflection in which we can think and give thanks for all that we DO have in our lives rather than all we don't have.

Milagro de San Cayetano/ A Miracle of St Cajetan


Un día, los religiosos de la orden no tenían que comer por haber dado todo a los menesterosos. Cayetano, que se hallaba orando en el altar, se acercó al sagrario y dando unos golpes en la puerta dijo: “Jesús amado, te recuerdo que hoy no hay nada para comer”. Minutos después, llegaron unas mulas con gran cantidad de provisiones y los arrieros no quisieron decir de dónde las enviaban..

One day, the Theatine brothers had nothing to eat since they had given everything to the needy. St Cajetan, who at that moment was praying at the altar, approached the tabernacle, knocked on the door and said " My beloved Jesus, I want to remind you that today we have nothing to eat". Minutes later, some mules arrived laden with all types of provisions, but the mule drivers refused to reveal who sent them.

Frustrated With Your Career Transition? Fire St. Cajetan, Patron of the Jobless!


Frustrated With Your Career Transition? Fire St. Cajetan, Patron of the Jobless!

article by Ricky McRoskey, published in the Catholic Business Journal 16th February 2009

I’m not proud of it, but about halfway through a torturous four-month job search, I fired a saint.  That’s right—I canned him.  Gave him the pink slip.  Told St. Cajetan (Caj-uh-tan)—the 16th-century patron of the jobless, the selfless Italian priest who once founded a bank that lent to the poor to shield them from loan sharks, the one who was supposed to be advocating for me in the job market—that he should consider himself as unemployed as I was.
For months, I had asked for Cajetan’s intervention amid a souring economy and job market.  I was tired of the hopeless cold mornings in a tiny Connecticut Starbucks, where I would send out countless e-mails begging for a job, an interview, or a referral.
In self-pity I grew one of those mangy half-beards and would occasionally sleep until 10 am—woe was me.  Months earlier I had graduated with a Master’s degree from Columbia, had landed a writing internship with a financial publication in New York City, and had followed graduation with a week home in San Diego with family, where I proposed to the love of my life overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  And now, here I was, up to my stubble-face in student debt, with a wedding on the horizon, in the early stages of a heartless Connecticut winter—without an income.  To boot, I had just told a member of heaven to take a long walk off a short pier.
St. Cajetan hadn’t done much for me. He’d even teased me a little: on a few instances over those four months I got to throw on my charcoal suit, shave, and polish my shoes in preparation for several interviews that looked to be promising.  None of them ultimately were.  It therefore made sense to do what any performance-driven boss would do: I fired him, and I vowed never to trouble him with any of my inconvenient affairs again.
But he didn’t take the hint. He started whispering.

“Go to Confession…”

Through a mix of shame and desperation, I limped into the confessional booth several times amidst my self-absorbed sorrow.  The funny thing was, the more I heard those things the confessors drilled, the flowery mantras or impossible advice they offered, the more I actually believed them.  Keep praying.  Shave.  Pound the pavement.  Think of your fiancee.  This is an opportunity.  Listen.  Wake up early.  Exercise.  Keep walking.  Keep praying.  Fight.   Cajetan, meanwhile, kept whispering.

“Say the rosary…”

Beads, it turns out, are portable.  Before the pangs of joblessness even hit me, my fianceé and I had decided to get in the habit of keeping a rosary in our pockets.  And so with every interview, train ride, or meal they came to remind us that the person God listens to the most—His Mother—also listens to us, especially when times are ugliest.  And times were indeed ugly. I found, though, that every Hail Mary gave me courage in interviews, patience in Internet cafes, and perspective in disappointment.  I just had to ask.  The problem was, it was tough to keep asking when it seemed like the bullets of bad news kept coming.  But just as half of a community is simply showing up, half of prayer is having the beads in your pocket.  The whispering continued.

“Go to Mass…”

I mean, I didn’t have an excuse here.  My schedule was embarassingly open, so I took the 30 minutes per day in Mass to start leaning on God a little more because this was getting damn harder.  My relationships were going through some miserable growing pains and my pride had been butchered.  I kept asking, “How will I support a wife who’s in graduate school?  Will we have to cancel the wedding? What about my student debt? My apartment?  Why am I so…cursed?”

That’s when I heard something else that really stirred me. During a five-minute homily, one priest encouraged those in the pews to consider reaching out to migrant workers who congregated every day near the local train station looking for work.  Hailing originally from Guatemala and Honduras and Mexico, they started every bone-chilling morning on the side of a road, hoping to return home that evening to their children and wife with the fruits of a day’s labor, if they were lucky: a few dollars.  So I brought them coffee one Saturday afternoon.

We spoke very little—like me, my Spanish also needed work—but what they said resounded.  “God will bless you.”  “Do you go to church?” “God will provide.”

It’s really hard to feel sorry for yourself when you realize that the world around you is a gift.  Somehow these poor men found a way not to be wretched or proud in their Goodwill snow jackets, but to offer a humble thank you and a smile.  To them, as to all of us, life is a gift.  Healthy families, loving spouses, generous friends, an education, a home, a warm shower, an Internet connection or a cup of coffee on a subzero afternoon—they’re all blessings.  And sometimes it takes one of the worst financial crises in recent history to hammer home the point that we are unfathomably dependent on someone far greater than us.
The world will have us believe we are the masters of our own destinies:  being unemployed for months reminds us we are not.  We are, however, the masters of our choices and we can either use those months to grow sorrow-beards and wallow in gloom or we can approach each day with a perseverant sense of thanksgiving.

I chose both.  I prefer the latter.  In January, I was hired by a firm in New York City and was greeted there with an overwhelming sense of welcome and kindness.  My only regret is having fired the saint who helped make the whole journey there worthwhile.
I assume he’s not lacking for work right now.


Prayer For Job-Seekers & The Unemployed

Oh St. Cajetan, whose inspiration has been a light for multitudes of unemployed, bless our hearts with the light of Christ so that we may be a beacon for others and hold Him in our bosom as you also did. We implore thee for special grace to endure our most troublesome time and not forget the poor in spirit and consequence. Please be by our side and guide us in the will of the Lord, Amen.

San Cayetano vuelve a convocar multitudes en su dia en una muestra de fe por el patrono del pan y del trabajo

Una procesion ayer en honor de San Cayetano, Tucuman, Argentina

El testimonio de los fieles
Miles de fieles se acercaron a la iglesia de San Cayetano, protagonistas de historias muy diferentes pero que tuvieron como denominador común la fe, la esperanza, la solidaridad y la voluntad de
no dejarse doblegar ante la adversidad.
"Agradezco con todo mi corazón y mi alma a San Cayetano porque siempre toda nuestra familia tiene trabajo y le suplico nos proteja a todos. Pero hoy muy especialmente le ruego por todos los hermanos que no tienen trabajo, comida, salud, vivienda y educación", expresó Matilde Carrizo de López (61), de barrio El Salvador, quien como todos los años concurrió a la Parroquia junto a su esposo, Oscar.
A su turno, Lucas Ocampo (23), comentó que está desempleado desde hace dos meses, cuando cerró sus puertas el drugstore en el que trabajaba medio día. "Vengo para pedir que San Cayetano me ayude a conseguir trabajo de nuevo. La verdad es que tengo mucha fe y espero que esta vez me cumpla como ya hizo en otras oportunidades", sostuvo Lucas.
Manuel Ricciuto (42), de Yerba Buena, dijo que "desde hace muchos hago la novena a San Cayetano y hasta ahora nunca ha faltado el trabajo, ni a mí ni a mis hijos. Por eso vengo a agradecerle por todo lo que nos ha dado y a pedir por aquellos que no consiguen un empleo", agregó.

St Cajetan, an example to follow for a world in crisis



"At bottom, capitalism is as much a moral enterprise as it is an economic one. If those lucky enough to become successful ignore the virtues of thrift, self-discipline and sobriety, as well as the moral imperative to look after the weak, then capitalism degenerates into cronyism and self-interest."

In the same way St Cajetan was faced with a society in which self-interest and greed ruled and in which the poor were swept out of the way as an inconvenience. He responded by giving up his worldly position as a son of an aristocratic family and a high ranking Vatican functionary, and devoted himself to providing help for the most marginalised in his society. He sold everything to build hospitals for the incurable and set up the Monte Pio's, which were banks which provided loans for everyone and charged very little interest, as a remedy for the heartless loan sharks of the time who forced people into ever greater debt and desperation.

St Cajetan is truly a Saint for our time and an example to follow, with the world on the verge of economic collapse due to greed and rampant self-interest, we need to look at his example of service, mercy and charity and his rejection of the false glamour of empty wealth and position. He knew that the image of God is to be found in the poor and suffering and that the only way forward for this world is through solidarity in which we all "Love our neighbours as ourselves". Imagine the paradise this world would be if everyone held out their hands in charity to their neighbour, in which we all looked after each other and in which egotistical behaviour had no place!

Love of money is truly the root of all evil, and nowhere is this more obvious than in that glorified casino called the stock market where the fate of millions is decided by what the traders feel that particular day.....whether they are jittery or bullish or bearish, it makes no difference to them, but it makes all the difference to those whose jobs rely on which way they throw the dice.

On this, St Cajetans feast, let us pray for all those who fear for their future, let us pray for our world in turmoil and let us pray that each of us can become the image of Divine Providence to our suffering neighbour. Let us all hope and pray since the mechanics of this crisis are out of our hands and way beyond most of our understanding and the solution to this crisis may just need a miracle....and St Cajetan is known as the saint of miracles.

7th August 1547, St Cajetan goes to his final reward in Heaven

A Fresco of the death of St Cajetan, San Paulo Maggiore, Naples

When the Saint was on his deathbed, his fellow Theatine brothers wished to move him from the hard wood floor where he habitually slept, to a proper bed to make him more comfortable. However St Cajetan, resigned to the Will of God, happy to suffer in offering a last act of penance for himself and the world, and eager for death to attain the heavenly crown he so longed for, protested and said, "if hard wood is good enough for my Saviour to die on then it is good enough for me". In these last moments he again beheld the Holy Mother of God, radiant with splendor and surrounded by ministering seraphim, in profound veneration, he said, "Lady, bless me!" Mary replied, "Cajetan, receive the blessing of my Son, and know that I am here as a reward for the sincerity of your love, and to lead you to paradise." She then exhorted him to patience in fighting an evil spirit who troubled him, and gave orders to the choirs of angels to escort his soul in triumph to heaven. Then, turning her countenance full of majesty and sweetness upon him, she said, "Cajetan, my Son calls thee. Let us go in peace.".
Worn out with toil and sickness, he went to his final heavenly reward on 7th August 1547.

Oracion A San Cayetano para los necesitados


ORACION A SAN CAYETANO

San Cayetano es el Patrono del pán y del trabajo, en estos tiempos que corren, somos muchos los que necesitamos de su ayuda, ya que él ayuda a los que están en paro, a los comerciantes y a los necesitados en general. Hay que llevar una estampita con su imagen en la billetera.
Para invocarlo hay que poner su imagen (una estampita vale) junto con un puñado de espigas de trigo o un trozo de pan. Encienda velas blancas. También se puede poner un billete debajo de las velas.

SU ORACION:

¡Oh glorioso san Cayetano,
padre de la providencia!
no permitas que en mi casa
me falte la subsistencia
y de tu liberal mano
una limosna te pido
en lo temporal y humano.
¡Oh glorioso san Cayetano!
¡Providencia, providencia, providencia!
(aquí se le pide la gracia que se desea)

Luego se reza un Padrenuestro, una Avemaria y una Gloria.

Oración a San Cayetano
Glorioso San Cayetano, Tú pasaste por la vida viendo a Cristo en los hermanos, especialmente a los más necesitados, y experimentaste la asistencia providencial de Dios.
Ayúdanos a construir una sociedad en la que todos participemos con nuestro trabajo y podamos reencontrar los valores que nos fueron arrebatados:
la solidaridad, el respeto, el bien común, la honestidad y la alegría.


San Cayetano Ruega Por Nosotros Y Por Nuestro Mundo Necesitado!


San Cayetano, te pedimos que intercedas ante Jesus,
Senor de la Historia, para que en nuestra patria sepamos:
Abrir las Puertas de nuestro corazon, a nuestros hermanos los pobres y hacerlos un lugar;
Derribar los muros que no nos dejan ver ni escuchar lo que sucede a nuestro alrededor:
Romper las cadenas que nos encierran en nuestro propio egoismo y
excluyen a tantos de nuestros hermanos:
Levantar las barreras que no nos dejan tender la mano hacia el projimo que no tiene trabajo
Tal cual vos lo hiciste en medio de los tuyos.
Amen 

Junto con San Cayetano rezamos por paz, pan y trabajo/ Together with St Cajetan we pray for peace, bread and work.

The celebration of St Cajetan's Feast in Argentina



“ San Cayetano we walk with faith, and ask for your protection.”
The general prayer to the saint across Argentina.

Every year, weeks ahead of 7th August, faithful churchgoers brave the damp winter chill to begin joining the queue to venerate one of the most popular saints in Argentine culture: San Cayetano (Saint Cajetan in English). Pilgrims flock to the Buenos Aires neighbourhood of Liniers in their millions to show their dedication to the saint affectionately known as ‘San Ca’ – the patron of labour – and ask for three things in particular: Bread, work and peace. But not necessarily in that order.

The Pilgrimage to Liniers
Unlike other pilgrimages, particularly to the patron saint, La Virgen de Luján, which involves trekking some 60km from Buenos Aires to Luján city; the greatest physical challenge for ‘San Ca’ pilgrims in Liniers is sustaining a strong back, as the lines to get into the Sanctuary
can last anything from between six to eight hours.
The church opens from midnight on 7th August and your wait depends on the reason for your visit, as there are two queues, each denoting a slightly different experience. One queue allows people to fast track slightly, receive the ‘San Ca’ blessing, pray for a bit, and move out. The other queue, considerably slower, allows followers to enter the church and pass by the illuminated saint and have a more personal moment in which they can reach out and make their own private prayer or pray for someone close to them. Inside the church around 60 priests are in charge of hearing confessions, conducting blessing services and blessing religious objects.
The blessing services are short masses in which a priest addresses pilgrims, and most of the services include music provided by a marching band, and a passing procession with a priest leading the march holding a statue of the Saint. When the processions pass the visitors, it is traditional to throw colourful confetti as a mark of joy, coating the inner and outer parts of the church in a haze multi-coloured rice paper.
The number of San Ca devotees that visit the large parish church varies, although it tends to increase yearly, and church sources last year predicted that approximately fifty thousand worshippers who belong to the church attended. The number increases more than ten-fold for the celebrations, however, with between 600,000 and a million visitors coming to pay homage to the saint.

Outside, the event completely takes over the neighbourhood, and the scene is festive and filled with people. Some have camped for weeks just for this moment, having come from near and far to experience the saint’s day and make their plea to San Ca. Some go as a gesture of gratefulness. Public services are provided, and volunteers in Liniers stay in the area to provide blankets, bread and mate cocido for those who stay the night, but many die-hard devotees are well-equipped with tents, chairs, food and bags filled with yerba mate to keep them going throughout the wait. During the day, street vendors try to make the most of the crowds, by selling ‘San Ca’ wreaths, jewellery and general religious gear.
The most famous and emblematic piece of memorabilia that people tend to purchase are wheat stalks in various colours and sizes, with a picture of San Ca himself attached to it, also containing the Cayetano prayer printed on the back. The wheat stalk represents the providing of bread and is a staple gift to give to someone who isn’t having the best luck in the world of work, or to just give to somebody as a good-will gesture. The rule behind the wheat stalk is that you are generally supposed to hang it behind the front-door of your house, and it has to be given to you by another. If any kind of San Cayetano gift or blessing has been given to you as a gift from another, the power of San Ca’s presence in your life is said to be greater.

The legacy of San Cayetano
San Cayetano was born in 1480 in Vicenzia, close to Venice in Italy. He was born into a wealthy family, going on to study at university and eventually working alongside Pope Julio II in Rome. He became a priest at the age of 33 and gave away his riches to the poor and dedicated the rest of his life to helping the lower classes, and those in need of work, dying on 7th August 1547. Over a century later, in 1671, he was declared a saint and has been celebrated and worshipped ever since across the globe.
His legacy is worshipped across the world, and devotion in Argentina has existed for years, but generally tends to heighten when the country is going through a period of economic crisis,
notably in 2001 during the corralito.
In Argentina the largest celebrations take place in Liniers, however there are San Cayetano churches across other parts of Buenos Aires – and the country.
The celebrations across Argentina are not restricted to just 7th August – on the seventh day of every month, those faithful to the saint make a trip down to church (if not every week) to mark their appreciation, or pray for another friend or family member who is in need of work. San Cayetano is worshipped all year around, and makes a huge impact on people’s lives. Aside from the parishes themselves, there are also San Ca schools, passing along the message of humility from the man himself, who after he died, was declared a saint.

Os lo pedimos por nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Amén.

Oración compuesta por San Cayetano.
"Mirad, oh Señor y Padre Santo, desde vuestro Santuario y lugar excelso donde habitáis en el cielo y fijad vuestra mirada en esta Hostia Santa que os ofrece nuestro gran Pontífice vuestro Hijo Santísimo y Señor nuestro Jesús por los pecados de sus hermanos, y perdonadnos nuestras muchas culpas. He aquí la voz de la sangre de nuestro Hermano Jesús que clame a Vos desde la Cruz. Escuchad, ¡oh Señor!, aplacaos, atended y enviad vuestro socorro; no lo retardéis, Dios mío, por vuestra gran bondad ya que vuestro nombre ha sido invocado sobre nosotros, sobre esta ciudad y sobre todo este pueblo y obrad con nosotros según vuestra misericordia".
Oh Dios!, Protector de los que en Vos confían sin cuyo poder y gracia nada existe de bueno y santo; derramad copiosamente sobre nosotros vuestra misericordia para que, a ejemplo de San Cayetano, usemos de tal modo de los bienes temporales que no perdamos los eternos de la gloria.
Os lo pedimos por nuestro Señor Jesucristo Amén

Novena Al Glorioso San Cayetano, DIA SEPTIMO

Por intercesión del glorioso San Cayetano,
socórrenos, Señor, con tu Providencia misericordiosa


 
ORACIÓN PREPARATORIA PARA TODOS LOS DÍAS

Omnipotente y sempiterno Dios, que hiciste que San Cayetano confiando en vuestra Providencia despreciara las cosas de la tierra y se viera enriquecido con abundantes bienes celestiales; concedednos que los que imploramos los efectos de vuestra admirable Providencia seamos socorridos en nuestras necesidades por su intercesión. Os lo pedimos por nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Amén.

DÍA SEPTIMO
Glorioso Protector, mío San Cayetano cuya profundísima humildad os hizo renunciar las dignidades pontificias y os reprochaba como un gran atrevimiento el haber recibido la dignidad sacerdotal; concedednos que no merezcamos por nuestra soberbia que Dios aparte su rostro de nosotros, sino que con nuestra sincera humildad atraigamos sobre nosotros sus misericordiosas miradas. Amén.

DÍA SEXTO
 
  Glorioso Protector mío San Cayetano cuya ardiente caridad dilató tanto vuestro pecho que de él salió vuestro corazón, agitando dos alas maravillosas, hacia el cielo y perseguisteis siempre a su enemigo mortal, el pecado; alcanzadnos que amemos a Dios de todo corazón y por Dios a nuestros prójimos. Amén
