St. Paul of the Cross, St. Gabriel, and St. Gemma, intercede for us!
You lived the Passion of Jesus and the Sorrows of Mary each in your own special way.
St. Paul, by your example of prayer, penance and preaching the Passion and Resurrection, teach us how to keep alive the memory of the sufferings, death and glory of Jesus in our hearts, and to help others to do the same.
St. Gabriel, by the way you did ordinary things with extraordinary fidelity to God, show us how to respond compassionately to the crucified of today who live all around us.
St. Gemma, marked with the wounds of Christ in your own body, lead us by our own acceptance of personal and family sufferings "to fill up what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ for the sake of his body, the church."
Saints of the Passion, thank you for the tremendous encouragement you give us by inspiring us to follow Christ more prayerfully and willingly. Relying on your friendship and intercessory power, we place these petitions in your loving hands.
Pray for us!
