|St Cajetan renounces worldly riches|
Daily Preparatory Prayer
Omnipotent and Eternal God, who crowned St Cajetan with abundant heavenly favours because of his trust and dependance on your Divine Providence and rejection of worldly things; graciously grant that we who beseech the help of your Providence may be helped in our necessities through his holy intercession.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen
O glorious St Cajetan, whose life was such a shining example of the virtue of hope, that you rejected all noble dignities and the help offered by those in power, preferring to free yourself from wordly things and to rely on Divine Providence alone to sustain yourself and your Theatine brothers; grant that we may live with the unshakeable hope that by the merits of Christ Jesus we may attain Eternal Life, and the confidence that God will provide us with the things of this world which are necessary to live with honour and dignity. Amen

Concluding Daily Prayers
A Prayer Composed By St Cajetan
Look down, O Lord, from Thy sanctuary, from Thy dwelling in heaven on high, and behold this sacred Victim which our great High Priest, Thy Holy Son our Lord Jesus Christ, offers up to Thee for the sins of His brethren and be appeased despite the multitude of our transgressions. Behold, the voice of the Blood of Jesus, our Brother, cries to Thee from the cross. Give ear, O Lord. Be appeased, O Lord. Hearken and do not delay for Thine own sake, O my God; for Thy Name is invoked upon this city and upon Thy people and deal with us according to Thy mercy. Amen.
