Prayer for St. Charbel’s Intercession

Lord, infinitely holy and glorified in your saints, you have inspired Charbel to lead the perfect life of a hermit. We thank you for granting him the blessing and strength to detach himself from the world so that the heroism of the monastic virtues of poverty, chastity and obedience, could triumph in his hermitage.

We beseech you to grant us the grace of loving and serving you, following his example. Almighty God, who has manifested the power of St. Charbel’s intercession through countless miracles and favors, grant us…

(State your intention)

through his intercession. Amen.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory be…
