Pray for the Negroes. *

St. Peter Claver, zealous disciple of St. Alphonsus Rodriguez, *

St. Peter Claver, emulator of the apostle of the Indies and Japan, *

St. Peter Claver, Apostle of the Negroes, *

St. Peter Claver, who didst procure for the slaves the holy liberty of the children of God, *

St. Peter Claver, who didst sign thyself: Slave of the Negroes forever, *

St. Peter Claver, model of evangelical laborers, *

St. Peter Claver, tender father of the poor, the widows, and the orphans, *

St. Peter Claver, refuge of all the unfortunate, *

St. Peter Claver, who didst make and fulfill the heroic vow of consecrating thyself entirely to the service of slaves, *

O thou who didst make thyself all to all in order to gain all to Jesus Christ, *

O thou who wast superior to all the vicissitudes of life by thine unalterable confidence in God, *

O thou who in thine inexhaustible charity didst cure so many sicknesses and relieve so many miseries, *

O thou who didst despise the riches of the earth in order to embrace evangelical poverty, *

O thou who didst prefer to the honors of the world the ignominies of the Cross, *

O thou who didst always seek to be forgotten and to be accounted for nothing among men, *

O thou who didst glory in knowing nothing else but Jesus Crucified, *

O thou who didst incessantly reduce thy body to servitude by the most rigorous austerities, *

Prodigy of innocence and of mortification, *

Living example of humility and of abnegation, *

Model of obedience and submission, *

Courageous and intrepid apostle in the midst of obstacles and contradictions, *

Martyr by the privations, and sufferings which thou didst endure for the salvation of souls, *

Fervent adorer of Jesus in the most holy Sacrament of the Altar, *

Contemplator and faithful imitator of Jesus suffering, *

O thou for whom the name and remembrance of Mary was ever a source of graces in all thy labors, *

St. Peter Claver, honor and ornament of the Society of Jesus, *

St. Peter Claver, illustrious by the numerous miracles thou didst work, *

St. Peter Claver, charitable and zealous protector of all those who invoke thee, *

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 the intercession of Thy servant in behalf of the poor Negroes. 

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world:
Have mercy on us. 

Let us pray: 

O God, Who in order that wretched slaves might come to the knowledge of Thy Name, didst endow St. Peter Claver, Thy confessor, with wonderful self-denial and eminent charity: grant that, by virtue of his example, many souls may be inspired with compassion for the poor Negroes and may courageously devote themselves to their conversion. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen

St. Peter Claver: Pray for us, 

O God, Who calling to the knowledge of Thy Name the Negro tribes sold into slavery, didst, in order that he might be a help to them, imbue blessed Peter with marvelous patience and charity: giving ear to his prayers, vouchsafe unto us to seek only the things which are of Jesus Christ, and thereby to love our neighbor in deed and in truth. Through the same Christ our Lord, Who with Thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, one God, world without end. R. Amen.
