PRAYERS IN HONOR OF SAINT CLEMENT MARIA HOFBAUER.

Priest of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer.
Born 1751; died 1820; beatified 1888; canonized
May 20,1909; feast, March 15th.

O Saint Clement, most faithful disciple of Jesus, our Redeemer, from thy tenderest infancy thou didst regard only holy Catholic Faith as thy only treasure, and wast solicitous to strengthen it in the hearts of the faithful with wonderful zeal, and to make it known among men. Obtain for us the grace to imitate thy example and to learn to esteem the precious gift of the true Faith above every other gift. Teach us to conform our actions to its holy maxims, so that, placing in the practice of Faith all our glory, we may exultingly repeat thy own words;

'We confess, we are sinners, and devoid of every virtue, but we glory in the fact that we are children of Holy Catholic Church".

II.

O Saint Clement, most constant disciple of Jesus, our Redeemer, mistrusting thyself and placing no reliance in the aid and counsels of men, thou didst repose all thy confidence in God alone. Strengthened by this firm hope, thou didst despite all the goods, pleasures and honors of the world, fixing thy eyes on Heaven, where joys are eternal and goods are imperishable. Obtain for us the grace to follow thy example by detaching ourselves from the things of this earth. Teach us to direct all our affections towards Heaven, confidently hoping from God, by means of holy prayer, the assistance necessary to effect this; mindful of the grand maxim which thou didst repeat from thy earliest years;

"We must devote to prayer the time that remains after the discharge of the duties of our state of life."

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be, etc.

III.

Saint Clement, most loving disciple of Jesus, our Redeemer, animated by the most ardent charity, thou didst live for God alone, and didst make thyself all to all to gain all for Jesus Christ. Persecutions and dangers, temptations and sufferings, were not able to diminish thy charity. Obtain for us, we implore thee, at least a spark of thy most burning love for God and our neighbor. Aid us by thy prayers to be so united in harmony and charity that we may always love our most loving Redeemer, Jesus Christ and His Immaculate Mother, follow Him steadfastly until death, and finally praise and bless Him all eternity.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be, etc.

V. Pray for us, O Saint Clement.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.

(Prayer of the Church.)

O God, Who didst adorn the Blessed Clement with wonderful strength of faith and with the virtue of constancy, through his merits and example, make us, we beseech Thee, so steadfast in faith and burning with charity, that we may obtain the eternal rewards. Through Christ, our Lord, Amen.
