Please pause a moment to pray with us the Collect of St. Romuald, founder of Camaldoli:
O God, Who chose St. Romuald to renew the eremitic life in Your Church,
give us the strength to deny ourselves in order to follow Christ in the way of
the Cross and to go up with Him into the glory of Your reign.
Through Jesus Christ Your Son, Who is God and Who live and reigns
with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
By the example of St. Romuald, confirm us in Your Service, Lord,
and bring to completion in us,
until the day of Christ,
the work of salvation that You have begun.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
