St Frideswide, patroness of the city and university of Oxford, with burning lamp on her feast day, complete with ox.

A prayer of St Cajetan for the city:

Look down, O Lord, from your sanctuary, from your dwelling in heaven on high, and behold this sacred Victim which our great High Priest, your holy Son our Lord Jesus Christ, offers up to you for the sins of his brethren, and be appeased despite the multitude of our transgressions. Behold, the voice of the Blood of Jesus, our Brother, cries to you from the cross.
Give ear, O Lord. Be appeased, O Lord. Hearken and do not delay for your own sake, O my God; for your name is invoked upon this city and upon your people; and deal with us according to your mercy. Amen.
That you would defend, pacify, keep, preserve, and bless this city, we beseech you, hear us.
