Prayer on the back:
O Saint Margaret of Castello, in embracing your life just as it was, you gave us an example of resignation to the Will of God. In so accepting God’s Will, you knew that you would grow in virtue, glorify God, save your own soul and help the souls of your neighbors. Obtain for me the grace to recognize the Will of God in all that may happen to me in my life and so resign myself to it. Obtain for me also the special favor which I now ask through your intercession with God.
Let us pray.
O God, by whose Will the blessed virgin, Margaret, was blind from birth, that the eyes of her mind being inwardly enlightened she might think without ceasing on You alone; be the light of our eyes, that we may be able to flee the shadows of this world, and reach the home of never-ending light. We ask this through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph, glorify your servant Saint Margaret, by granting the favor we so ardently desire. This we ask in humble submission to God’s Will, for His honor and glory and the salvation of souls.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be to the Father....
