Courage! We are not in the world to follow our own will and pleasure but to imitate the Lord - Saint John Baptist de Rossi.

O God, light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who set blessed John Baptist de Rossi in the Church to feed your sheep by his words and form them by his example, grant that through his intercession we may keep the faith he taught by his words and follow the way he showed by his example. We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen! (Novena Prayer)
