Prayer to St Ralph Sherwin

Most Holy Priest and Martyr, Saint Ralph Sherwin,
you gave your whole life freely and earnestly,
forsaking all risk to yourself,
seeking to do the Lord’s will
“today rather than tomorrow”.

You died for love of Christ and his Church,
as a witness to bring others to the truth.
Pray that we might follow the Lord more earnestly,
with eyes fixed firmly on his Son,
never putting off till tomorrow what can be done today.

Obtain for us the grace to share your courage and conviction,
to live lives transformed by love of Jesus,
following His call wherever it may lead,
sharing Him with all whom we meet.
