Prayer to Sts. Simon and Jude
O Almighty God,
you have built your Church upon the foundation Of the Apostles and Prophets,
with Jesus Christ Himself as the corner-stone;
Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their doctrine,
that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you.
O God, we thank you for the glorious company of the apostles,
And especially on this day for Simon and Jude;
and we pray that, as they were faithful and zealous in their mission,
so we may with ardent devotion
make known the love and mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
