Blessed Julia,
Witness of living faith,
Obedient to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit,
Loving Christ and the Church,
Trusting in God’s love,
Entrusting everything to Mary,
Devoted to the life of prayer,
Apostle of the Eucharist,
Propagator of the prayer of the Rosary,
Faithful to Christ in religious vows,
Showing forth the beauty of consecrated life,
Caring for families,
Guardian of orphans,
Educator of youth,
Exemplar of teachers,
Joyful witness of evangelical charity,
Angel of goodness,
Experiencing hunger and thirst,
Sharing with others the last piece of bread,
Longing for the Sacrifice of the Mass,
United in solidarity with the suffering and excluded,
Awakening hope in the doubting and despairing,
Protecting the deathly ill,
Supporting the dying through prayer,
Respecting the dignity of every human being,
Forgiving the oppressors,
Merciful Samaritan,
Ministering to neighbors in the inhumane conditions of the camp,
Uniting those of different nationalities and religions,
Obliterated through love of neighbor,
Martyr gazing at the Crucified Lord,
Incinerated among “human numbers,”
Fulfilling the Father’s will unto giving up one’s life,
Bravely following the narrow path into the Father’s arms,
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
graciously hear us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,
have mercy on us.

Pray for us, O blessed Julia.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray:
Loving God, you are the strength of those who put their trust in you. You have enabled Blessed Julia Rodzinska to give a testimony of unshaken faith amidst injustice, hatred and human cruelty and thus made her a ray of hope and the living sign of your love. Through her intercession and example teach me how to draw strength from the sacrament of the Eucharist and from the prayer of the Rosary, so I may live in perfect union with you and give witness to my Christian calling through humble service of my neighbor. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
