Christ, graciously hear us.
God, the Father of heaven, have mercy on us.

St. Ignatius, founder of the Society of Jesus, pray for us.*
Inflamed with divine love,*
Promoter of the conversion of the world,*
Zealous for the greater glory of God,*
Dead to the world through the spirit of mortification,* 
Conqueror of all perverse inclinations,*
Despiser of the world,*
Zealous instructor of youth,*
Support of Christ's Church against her enemies,*
Antagonist of heretical errors,*
Father of converted sinners,*
Perfect follower of Jesus Christ,*
Lover of voluntary poverty,*
Lover of angelical purity,*
Master of perfect obedience,*
Born again to divine love,*
Rapt in contemplation,*
Mirror of humility,*
Lover of fraternal charity,*
Promoter of peace among men,*
Singular for peace of mind,*
Enemy of sin,*
Perfect model of a religious life,*
Little before men, and great before God,*
Lover of heavenly glory,*

Be merciful unto us, 
Spare us, O Lord,

Be merciful unto us,
Graciously hear us, O Lord.

We sinners beseech Thee to hear us.
That we may refer all we do to Thy honor and glory,
We beseech Thee to hear us.**

That we may be re-born to a better life,**
That we may die to the flesh and the world,**
That we may subdue our passions and vicious inclinations,**
That we shun sin as a plague,**
That we may detest all pride,**
That we may love purity,**
That we may promote the instruction of youth,**
That we may learn to despise earthly goods,**
That we may be true followers of Christ,**
That we may bear patiently the loss of all temporal goods,**
That we may exercise purity and modesty on all occasions,**
That we may cordially esteem the commandments of God and our superiors,**
That we may ever cultivate brotherly love,**
That we be little in this world, and great in heaven,**
That we may ever seek after eternal goods,**
Son of God,**

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Lord
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord
Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us

Christ hear us!
Christ graciously hear us!
Lord, have mercy on us.
Christ, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.

Our Father, etc.

Let us pray:

O God! Who, for the propagation of the greater glory of Thy name, hast by blessed Ignatius strengthened the church militant with new auxiliaries; graciously vouchsafe that we by his assistance and imitation, solicitously combating upon earth, may obtain with him an everlasting crown in Heaven, Who liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen
