Prayer to Blessed Alojzije Stepinac
Lord our God,
you gave Blessed Alojzije Stepinac
the grace of a true, alive faith in Jesus Christ
and the courage to suffer martyrdom for Him;
help us to follow Alojzije’s example and his teachings
to love Jesus as he did,
to serve the church as he did,
and to give our lives as he did,
faithful to God until the end.
make us faithful to what Jesus wants from us
especially during small things everyday,
so that we may be capable
of giving testimony to our faith
even in our big struggles and persecutions.
Intercede for us the gift of prayer,
courage that comes from truth in every situation,
a selfless love towards everyone,
and trust in the Virgin Mary.
Blessed Alojzije Stepinac,
pray for us!
