    My Patron St Januarius, thank you so much for interceding for us all these years. I am very sorry for my knowing about you just these few years, forgive me and pray for me. Pray for me to be fully healthy and be free of sin, sicknesses, diseases and attacks of the evil ones. Pray for me to be an expert in my job. Pray for my blood to be liquidified and be active as yours. Pray that the precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ purify me. Pray for peace in this wicked World that is full of evil and violent people. Pray for the continued protection and blessings to the Holy Catholic Church and the faithful. All these and other more I ask, through Jesus Christ our Lord, amen
