We commit our souls and bodies to the Most Holy Trinity, and to the merits and grace of our Lord Jesus, God Incarnate, to the intercession and compassion of our dear Mother Mary, to Saint Joseph, and our holy father Saint Philip, and especially to thee Saint John Henry. Together with all the saints and angels, pray to God to bring us all together again in heaven, under the feet of the Saints. And, after the pattern of the Good Shepherd, who seeks so diligently for those who are astray, ask him especially to have mercy on those who are external to the true fold, and to bring them into it before they die.
— A prayer to St John Henry Newman, based on his writings
