O holy King St. Louis,
worthy son of our Holy Father St. Francis

Obtain for me the grace to follow in thy footsteps,
to be always a dutiful child of St. Francis,

Be my guide and protector,
so that I may never stray from the path of virtue
but increase daily in holiness and perfection,
and finally merit to be numbered among the chosen ones
of our Seraphic Father in Heaven.

Amen.

O God, Who didst exalt blessed Louis Thy Confessor
from an earthly realm to the glory of Thy Heavenly kingdom:
