Saint Rafqa of Lebanon



Lord Jesus Christ, You who impressed Saint Rafqa’s life profoundly, as a teacher, worker, praying nun and participant in Your passion.

We ask You, through her intercession , to bless our children, to protect the youths, to sanctify our monksand nuns, to reward our parents’ fatigue, to grant recovery, joy and happiness to the sick, to respond to the prayers of those gathered in Your name in churches and monasteries all around the world.

As You made Saint Rafqa enjoy the blessings of eternal life, grant us the blessing of living like her in faith and hope all our life, so that we may glorify You with Saint Rafqa, the Virgin Mary and all the Saints and thank You, Your Father and Your Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen.
