May 2: Saint Athanasius

Almighty, ever-living God and Father, you raised up Saint Athanasius as the great champion of your Son’s divinity. Through the doctrine and patronage of your saint, in which we rejoice, let our knowledge and love of you grow ever deeper and stronger. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Saint Athanasius, pray for us.
