you filled Saint Charles with your Holy Spirit.
In love with Christ Crucified he spent his life in prayer at the foot of the Cross.
From the Cross he went forth to bring Good News to the poor,
healing to the sick and dying, forgiveness to the sinner.
Look now on your people who cry to you and grant that we may imitate him
in his virtues, his piety, his chastity and zeal for the eternal salvation of the souls.
Holy Charles, through your intercession
give us the graces that we need so much.
Place now from Heaven your Blessing Hands on our diseases and wounds,
so that we may obtain the graces we implore through your intercession…
May thus our faith be strengthened, our hope deepened and our love be increased.
We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
Glory be to the Father…
Saint Charles, pray for us
