6thMay Saint Dominic Savio


Prayer by St Dominic Savio

O Mary, I give you my heart.
Grant me to be always yours.

Jesus and Mary, be ever my friends;
and, for love of you,
grant me to die a thousand deaths
rather than to have the misfortune
of committing a single mortal sin. Amen.

Prayer to St Dominic

O Saint Dominic Savio, a model of purity, piety, penance and apostolic zeal for youth; grant that, through your intercession, we may service God in our ordinary duties with fervent devotion, and attain the grace of holy joy on earth, that we may one day love God forever in Heaven. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Dominic Savio

Dear Saint Dominic, you spent your short life totally for love of Jesus and His Mother. Help youth today to realize the importance of God in their lives. You became a saint through fervent participation in the sacraments, enlighten parents and children to the importance of frequent confession and Holy Communion. At a young age you meditated on the sorrowful Passion of Our Lord. Obtain for us the grace of a fervent desire to suffer for love of Him.

We desperately need your intercession to protect today’s children from the snares of the world. Watch over them and lead them on the narrow road to Heaven. Ask God to give us the grace to sanctify our daily duties by performing them perfectly out of love for Him. Remind us of the necessity of practicing virtue especially in times of trial.

Saint Dominic Savio, you who preserved your baptismal innocence of heart, pray for us.

Prayer to Saint Dominic Savio

who learned from the school of
St. John Bosco,
who grew in holiness,
help us to follow you,
in your love for
Jesus and Mother Mary
in your diligence
and in fulfilling your duties.
Help us that we too,
by resolving to die
rather than offending God.
May come at last to eternal joys
of heaven. Amen.
