Oh Holy Apostles Peter and Paul!
I choose you today and forever for my special protectors and lawyers;
and I humbly rejoice so much with you, Saint Peter, Prince of the Apostles,
because you are the stone on which God built his Church;
as with you, Saint Paul, chosen by God
for vessel of choice and preacher of truth throughout the world.
Reach me, I beg you, a living faith, a firm hope and a perfect charity;
attentiveness in prayer, purity of heart, right intention in deeds,
diligence in the fulfillment of the obligations of my state, constancy in the purposes,
resignation to the will of God and perseverance in divine grace until death;
so that through their intercessions and their glorious merits,
I can overcome the temptations of the world, of the devil and of the flesh,
make me worthy to present myself before the supreme and eternal shepherd of souls Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever,
to enjoy and love him forever.
