O faithful shepherd, Blessed Stanley Rother,
as priest and missionary, you tilled the soil with your hands
and invited Christ Jesus to till the soil of your soul.

You became a sign of the love of Christ the Good Shepherd for your
People, and blessed their lives by your ministry.

You stood firm and did not run from danger,
bringing glory to God and His Church in your martyrdom.

Blessed Stanley, obtain from the heart of Jesus
(here make your request…), and pray for me,
that I too may be a sign of Christ’s love among His people.

Teach me to faithfully till the soil of this life
in the reality given to me by our Father,
unafraid to stay with those God has given me, no matter the cost.

Through Jesus Christ Our Lord.
