Prayer for Heart Patients to St. John of God
Dear Convert, after a sinful life, through the power of God's holy Word you learned to love your fellow human beings. Self-sacrificing, you founded the Society of Hospital Brothers. No wonder the Church made you the patron of patients and nurses, Heart patients. That is why we confidently have recourse to you. Please give assistance to (Name) and teach us to be kind like you.
God, You filled St. John with the spirit of compassion. Grant that by practicing works of charity we may deserve to be numbered among the elect in Your Kingdom. Amen.
