reading and prayer for the fifth day of the novendiales

A reading from the holy Gospel accordin to Luke (22:31-34):

"[Jesus said,] 'Simon, Simon, behold Satan has demanded to sift all of you like wheat, but I have prayed that your own faith may not fail; and once you have turned back, you must strengthen your brothers.' He said to him, 'Lord, I am prepared to go to prison and to die with you.' But he replied, 'I tell you, Peter, before the cock crows this day, you will deny three times that you know me.'"


you gave Pope John Paul,
your servant and priest,
the privilege of a holy ministry in this world.
May he rejoice for ever
in the glory of your kingdom,
where you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
