Prayer to Saint Martín of Tours


Blessed Saint Martín of Tours, 
full of the Spirit of the Lord
always having inexhaustible charity for the needy.

Thou, who full of love and generosity
when thou saw the begger that was freezing from cold,
without knowing that in truth he was Christ,
did not doubt to give him half of thy cape, 
and did not give it completely to him 
since the other half belonged to the Roman army;
thou, who did not seek recognition 
but only to favour thy neighbour, 
found glory before the Lord.
And when the Savior appeared to thee
dressed with the half-cape
so as to express appreciation for thy gesture
and He told thee "today thou covered me with thy mantle",
thou decided to no longer serve the army
and to dedicate thy life to God
and to the salvation of souls, 
being from then on a propagator of the faith
and a holy man totally dedicated
to whomever was in need. 

Glorious Saint Martin,
thou who worked miracles and prodigies,
who with joy, amiability and
the most exquisite goodness
won over the hearts of all
and did not cease to ever work for their wellbeing: 
give me thy hand and help me to come out
of all lack and scarcity
which today afflicts me and weighs me down. 

Glorious Saint Martin, my blessed patron,
I humbly ask thee with great faith
that thou attain from God,
the fount of all Mercies
that my ways on this earth,
my work and my toils
be cleansed and opened with clarity. 
In the name of Omnipotent God,
Saint Martin of Tours,
remove all that harms me
and give me work and prosperity. 
O blessed relief, give me thy saintly protection,
assist me, I beg thee, in these difficult times: 

(mention intentions here) 

Thou, noble Saint Martin, who have miraculous power
take my supplications with haste to the Heavens,
ask for my home all that is good; 
may sorrows, ruins and miseries leave, 
and may the Lord deign I merit
blessed fortune in my work (business),
and with it, abundance and prosperity,
so I may give freely to all in need.

Saint Martin, blessed Bishop of Tours, 
may thy virtues and charity
accompany me always.
I will not cease to pray to thee
and to thank Almighty God
for all the favours granted;
and I promise to be charitable
and giving with all my brothers and sisters in need.

Saint Martin, please intercede for me;
free and protect all my loved ones and I
from all that is evil.
Amen

Conclude with the Credo, Pater Noster, Ave Maria and Minor Doxology.
