ST BARTHOLOMEW (NATHANAEL) – FEAST DAY: AUGUST 24th
Strengthen in us, O Lord,
the faith, by which the blessed
clung wholeheartedly to Your Son,
and grant that through the help of his prayers
Your Church may become for all the nations
the sacrament of salvation.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
