Prayer to Saint Paul the Apostle

PAULINE BEATITUDES Blessed are they who, like Paul, believe that God has a dream for each one of us (Gal. 1:5) 

They will search for that dream day by day and hold fast to it.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, know how to thank God for everything. (1 Cor. 4:7) They will live in humility and peace.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, consider everything as lost when compared to the profound knowledge of Jesus Christ. (Phil. 3:7) 

They will be stretched into growth by their continual pursuit of Him in everything.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, feel that they have not yet arrived at their goal, and fun consistently toward it. They will reach fullness of life.  Blessed are they who, free of heart like Paul, make themselves servants of all for the sake of the Gospel. (1 Cor. 9:19) 

They will find in their journey innumerable friends.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, know that they possess an immense treasure in vessels of clay. They will come face-to-face with extraordinary power from God.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, have experienced everything in Christ » thirst and hunger, to be poor and to be rich » (Phil. 4:12). 

They will be serene and strong in every situation.  Blessed are they who, like Paul, face thousands of difficulties for the purpose of announcing the Gospel (2 Cor. 11:29)  At the end of their life, they will be lifted up with the beauty and meaning given by this quest. They will not have lived in vain.

For Our Nation  Saint Paul, teacher of the Gentiles, watch over with love, this nation and its people. Your heart expanded so as to welcome and enfold all peoples in the loving embrace of peace. Now, from heaven, may the charity of Christ urge you to enlighten everyone with the light of the Gospel, and to establish the kingdom of love. 
Inspire vocations, sustain those working for the Gospel, render all hearts docile to the Divine Master. 
May this nation ever more find in Christ the Way and the Truth and the Life. May its light shine before the world, and may it always seek the kingdom of God and his justice. 

Holy Apostle, enlighten, comfort and bless us all. Amen.
