Martyrs and patrons,
protect this land which you have blessed
by the shedding of your blood.
Renew in these days our Catholic faith
which you helped to establish in this new land.
Bring all our fellow citizens
to a knowledge and love of the truth.
Make us zealous in the profession of our faith
so that we may continue and perfect the work
which you have begun with so much labour and suffering.
Pray for our homes, our schools,
our missions, for vocations,
for the conversion of sinners,
the return of those who have wandered from the fold,
and the perseverance of all the faithful.
And foster a deeper and increasing unity among all Christians.
O God, who by the preaching and the blood of your blessed Martyrs,
John and Isaac and their companions, consecrated the first fruits
of the faith in the vast regions of North America, graciously
grant that by their intercession the flourishing harvest of Christians
may be everywhere and always increased. Through Christ our Lord.
