Prayer to St. Gregory Vii Pope and Confessor

O invincible defender of Holy Church's freedom,

Saint Gregory of great renown,

by that firmness thou didst show

in maintaining the Church's rights against all her enemies,

stretch forth from Heaven thy mighty arm,

we beseech thee,

to comfort her and defend her in the fearful battle

she must ever wage with the powers of darkness.

Do thou, in an especial manner,

give strength in this dread conflict to the venerable Pontiff

who has fallen heir not only to thy throne,

but likewise to the fearlessness of thy mighty heart;

obtain for him the joy of beholding his holy endeavors

crowned by the triumph of the Church

and the return of the lost sheep into the right path.

Grant, finally, that all may understand

how vain it is to strive against that faith

which has always conquered and is destined always to conquer:

"this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith."

This is the prayer that we raise to thee with one accord;

and we are confident, that,

after thou hast heard our prayers on earth,

thou wilt one day call us to stand with thee in Heaven,

before the eternal High Priest,

Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit

liveth and reigneth world without end.

Amen
