Hail Glorious St Cajetan! Feast Day 7th August

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by
all people to be the father of providence
because you provide miraculous aid to
all in need, I stand here before you today,
asking that you present to the Lord our God
the requests that I confidently deposit
in your hands today.
May these graces that I now request
help me to always seek the Kingdom
of God and his Righteousness,
knowing that God — who dresses with
beauty the flowers of the field and
abundantly feeds the birds of the
sky — will give me all other
things. Amen.

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.

St Cajetan on his Feast day 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.

Imitate St. Cajetan's devotion to Our Blessed Lady, 
by invoking her aid before every work.
