Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord, alleluia.
From the Dominican Ordo:
Blessed Peter was born at Palencia, Spain, towards the end of the twelfth century. He pursued an ecclesiastical career and became dean of the Church of Palencia. Moved by the grace of God, he asked for the habit of the order nad became as renowned fo his humility as he had previously been renowned for his greed for glory. He was notable for his life of prayer and for his service to his neighbor, especially those who were in peril on the sea. Sailors have invoked his intercession under the name “Saint Elmo.” He died at Tuy, Spain, on April 14, 1246.
you bestowed the singular help of Blessed Peter
on those in peril from the sea.
By the help of his prayers
may the light of your grace shine forth
in all the storms of this life
and enable us to find the harbor of everlasting salvation.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
