O God,
Who by the preaching and blood of Thy sainted martyrs,
Isaac and John and their companions,
didst consecrate the first fruits of the Faith in the vast regions of North America,
graciously grant that by their intercession,
the flourishing harvest of Christians may everywhere be increased.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee,
in union with the Holy Ghost,
one God, world without end.


O God,
who didst inflame the hearts of Thy sainted martyrs
with an admirable zeal for the salvation of souls,
grant us, we beseech Thee,
what we now implore:
(Here privately form your petitions.)
so that the favors obtained through their intercession
may make manifest before men and power and glory of Thy name.
