August 24: Feast of St. Bartholomew

O Almighty and Everlasting God, who didst give to thine Apostle Bartholomew grace truly to believe and to preach thy Word; Grant, we beseech thee, unto thy Church, to love that Word which he believed, and both to preach and receive the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
St. Bartholomew, pray for us.
