St. Louis of France (1214-1270)
O God, you called your servant Louis of France to an earthly throne
that he might advance your heavenly kingdom, and gave him zeal
for your Church and love for your people: Mercifully grant that we
who commemorate him this day may be fruitful in good works, and
attain to the glorious crown of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
