A BROTHER A DAY PRAYER IN ONE YEAR

Praying for a Capuchin Brother each day has been a very long tradition of the Capuchins in the Philippines. Throughout the Capuchin Philippine Province, all the brothers would pray for one brother each day of the year.

PRAYER 1

“Loving one another with that charity with which Christ
loved us, we should not avoid a brother, who is at a
critical moment in his life, but rather be eager to help him
and if he has fallen we ought not to be his judges but his
protectors and preserve his good name, we should love him
all the more …” Constitutions 108

O most high,

Glorious God,

look with mercy

upon my brother N. _____

enlighten the darkness

of his heart,

give him a right faith,

a certain hope,

and a perfect love,

understanding

and knowledge, Lord,

so that he may always

and in all things

do your holy and

true command”.

Amen.

(From the “Prayer of Francis before the Crucifix of San Damiano)

PRAYER 2

The Lord has given me brothers” (Testament 14)

Most high,

Omnipotent, good Lord,

you are good, all good,

You alone are good;

be praised my Lord

by all your creatures,

be praised my Lord by all those

you have given me

as brothers

in this Province;

today, especially

be praised

by Brother N. _____

bless him and keep him,

show your face to him

and have mercy on him,

turn your countenance to him

and give him peace.

May the Lord bless you,

Brother N. _____

(From the “Canticle of the Sun” and the “Blessing of Francis to Brother Leo”)

PRAYER 3

PRAYER 3

“Brother Francis, your little servant, wishes well in the Lord Jesus, to all of you, my brothers,

from the first to last.”

(Letter to the Whole Order)

Almighty, eternal,

just and merciful God,

look with mercy

upon my Brother N. ____

give him to do

for your sake alone

what he knows you wish of him

and grant him always to desire

what is pleasing to you,

so that cleansed,

enlightened and inflamed

by the fire of the Holy Spirit

he may always follow

the footsteps of Your Son,

our Lord Jesus Christ,

and by your grace alone,

may he come to You,

O most High,

who in perfect Trinity

and simple unity

live and reign

and are glorified

God almighty through all ages.

Amen

(From the “Letter to the Whole Order”)

PRAYER 4

As brothers given to each other by the Lord”. Constitutions 84

“Holy Lord, Only God,

all good,

I commend today

to your care and protection

my Brother N. ___ your son,

give him everything

that is good for him,

be his security,

his joy,

be his hope

and gladness,

be you alone

all his riches to the full,

be his protector,

guardian and defender,

be his strength

and refreshment,

be all his delight,

be his eternal life.

O great

and marvelous Lord,

God almighty,

merciful Savior”.

Amen

(From the “Praises of God” that Francis wrote to Brother Leo in Mount Laverna)
