Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
You blessed Elizabeth Ann Seton
with gifts of grace as wife and
mother, educator and foundress,
so that she might spend her life
in service to Your People.
Through her example and prayers,
may we learn to express
our love for You in love for our
fellow men and women.
We ask this through our Lord
Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
