Ask God for the grace to imitate the example of the saints we celebrate during the liturgical year.

Ordinary Time is full of many feast days dedicated to a number of holy saints. Their lives are honored and celebrated by the Church in hopes that we too will one day be included in the heavenly banquet.

Here is a prayer from The Catholic prayer book and manual of meditation that asks God for the grace to imitate the examples of the saints we celebrate at Mass.

Grant, we ask you, Almighty God,
that the examples of your saints may move us to reform our lives,
that while we celebrate their feasts,
we may also imitate their actions,
through our Lord Jesus Christ.
