Holy Martyrs and patrons, 
protect this land which you have blessed 
by the shedding of your blood. 
Renew in these days our Catholic faith 
which you helped to establish in this new land. 
Bring all our fellow citizens 
to a knowledge and love of the truth. 
Make us zealous in the profession of our faith 
so that we may continue and perfect the work 
which you have begun with so much labour and suffering. 
Pray for our homes, our schools, 
our missions, for vocations, 
for the conversion of sinners, 
the return of those who have wandered from the fold, 
and the perseverance of all the faithful. 
And foster a deeper and increasing unity among all Christians. 
Amen.
