PRAYER OF THE CHURCH
who didst enrich St. Benedict,
Thy confessor, with heavenly gifts,
and didst permit him to be distinguished in the Church through miraculous signs and virtues,
grant us, we beseech Thee,
that through his merits and intercession we may receive Thy benefits.
Through Christ our Lord.
