St. Katharine Drexel prayer

Father, Your divine grace led Saint Katharine Drexel
to give herself completely over to your service in the Church
in imitation of the poor Savior, attending to the least,
as a virgin foundress and a laborer for the justice of the Gospel.

Her strength, virtue and fortitude came from her unwavering devotion to the Mystery of the Most Holy Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament.

Grant through her intercession that we may see Christ in all we encounter, especially those who feel cast out by society. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
