Prayer Each Day:


Lord, in these days of pride and display, by the humble ways of Your servant, 

Bishop Neumann, inspire us 

to imitate Your own divine example. 

Teach us to be like Your servant, 

the holy bishop, 

intent on pleasing You first 

and on performing good deeds 

free from the desire to be seen 

and glorified by others. 

That his holy example may continue 

to influence others, 

grant the favors we ask through his intercession. 

Amen.
