Saint Arnold Janssen Prayer
God, our Father, St. Arnold knew well by experience the pain of suffering and the cross which he called “the salt with which the eternal joys are seasoned.” He found his true happiness and bliss in abandoning himself totally to your will and in service to the Church. Therefore, with confidence we pray to him that we too may be trusting in our efforts to make known your love to all people.
St. Arnold, model of intimate union with God and of dedication to the missionary needs of the Church, implore God to endow men and women in our day with your spirit of dedicated love and service. Obtain for us strength and perseverance so that we may, with grateful hearts and generous zeal, accept our responsibility to carry forward the missionary work of the Church and in the power of the Holy Spirit fulfill that responsibility through Christ our Lord. Amen. (Divine Word Missionaries)
