O God, through mortification of the body and preaching of the faith, you raised the blessed Louis, your confessor, to the glory of the saints; grant that what we profess by faith we may ever fulfill by works of piety.

The preaching one hears from a member of the Order of Preachers ought to lead each person to a deeper relationship with God. Saint Louis Bertrand said, "If because of your preaching men lay aside enmities, forgive injuries, avoid occasions of sin and scandals, and reform their conduct, you may say that the seed has fallen on good ground.  But to God alone give all the glory and acknowledge yourselves ever unprofitable servants."

~Saint Louis Bertrand to the young Dominican students

Let us pray through Saint Louis Bertrand's intercession for the Church in the Americas and the Islands.
