Prayer in San Charbel
Oh great thaumaturgy Saint Charbel, who has spent his life in solitude in a humble and hidden hermitage, renouncing the world and its vain pleasures, and now reigns in the glory of the saints, in the splendor of the Most Holy Trinity, intercede for us. Enlighten our mind and heart, increase our faith and strengthen our will. Increase our love for God and neighbor. Help us to do well and avoid evil. Defend us from visible and invisible enemies and help us throughout our lives.
You who do wonders for those who invoke you and obtain the healing of innumerable evils and the solution of problems without human hope, look to us with pity and, if it conforms to the divine will and our greater good, obtain from God the grace that we implore, above all, help us to imitate your holy and virtuous life. Amen. Holy Father, Ave, Gloria
