St. Charbel Prayers

Prayer One

O Lord Jesus, you inspired the Saint, Monk and Hermit Charbel to live and die in your path and you gave him the strength to detach himself from the world in order to make triumph, in his hermitage, the monastic virtues. We implore Thee to bestow upon us the grace to love Thee and serve Thee following his example.

God Almighty, who has manifested the power of Saint Charbel’s intercession, by the numerous miracles and favours, grant us our petition(s) by his intercession. Amen

Prayer Two

Dear Lord, You, who taught Saint Charbel how to be rooted in monastic vows which he lived in absolute silence and neutrality, conforming his life to Yours, help us to commemorate him and meditate his heroic and extraordinary life by telling him:

Blessed are you Saint Charbel, for you were passionate in prayer, virtue and piety when you were still a child in your far away village in Lebanon amongst your serene family and decent relatives.

Blessed are you, for entering the monastic life, accepting the call of God with full liberty and freedom. Thus, you left your humble and quiet village of Bekaa Kafra, North Lebanon and you never returned again.

Blessed are you for you dedicated your life to monastic vows and to the priesthood, participating daily in mass and looking continuously and tirelessly for the face of God.

Blessed are you for you shined over all the other hermits due to your absolute asceticism and your unnatural silence which astonished all those who knew you even after your death.

And now, my Lord, we ask you through the intercession of Saint Charbel, to keep your Church enriched with all those who have a similar life and who follow the path of our holy priests, hermits and monks who sacrifice themselves for the salvation of the whole world. Amen

Prayer Three

O Jesus, You who invited the righteous Saint Charbel to join the monastic life rooting his faith among his Christian family in his village of Bekaa kafra, North Lebanon, give us through his intercession, families reanimated by the firm faith, the domestic virtues and the parental example so that they become source of real Christian vocations. Amen.

Prayer Four

O Lord infinitely glorified by His Saints, You who fascinated the heart of Saint Charbel who chose the hermit life, granting him the grace and the power of being away from world keeping firm to his monastic virtues of chastity, obedience and poverty, we ask You to give us the grace of loving You and serving You as he did.

O mighty God, You who spread the power of Saint Charbel’s intercession through the multiple miracles and marvels, provide us, through his intercession, with the grace to which we aim. Amen.
