Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Bartholomew, also known as Nathaniel, an Apostle of the Lord, Jesus. Let us pray. Strengthen in us, O Lord, the faith by which the Blessed Apostle Bartholomew 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, forever and ever. Amen
