Lord, our God,
who inspired your servant Franz de Castro Holzwarth for total dedication of love to the convicted, at the point of shedding his own blood in favor of them. We ask you that, if it be your will, Franz de Castro may be glorified by your church and, through his intercession, we can receive the grace we need and ask You with faith.
Strengthen us, o Lord, in living the love to our neighbor and bless everybody who works for the Prison Ministry.
Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
