Indulgenced Prayer to St. John, the Apostle
O Glorious Apostle,
who, on account of thy virginal purity,
wast so beloved by Jesus as to deserve to lay thy head upon his divine breast,
and to be left, in his place,
as son to his most holy Mother;
I beg thee to inflame me with a most ardent love towards Jesus and Mary.
Obtain for me from our Lord that I, too,
with a heart purified from earthly affections,
may be made worthy to be ever united to Jesus as a faithful disciple,
and to Mary as a devoted son,
both here on earth and eternally in heaven.
(Indulgence 200 days, once a day, Leo XIII, 1897)
