The Prayer of St Benedict

Dear St Benedict
You practised what you taught
fevently praying for God's glory
and lovingly working for God and the benefit of other.
You know the many dangers that surround us today.
Guard us against the poisoning of our spirits, souls and bodies
and thus be truly a "Blessed"one for us.  Amen
