Sts. Isaiah and Herma

May 9

The commemoration of Saint Isaiah, the prophet, who in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, was sent that he might reveal the Lord as faithful and as a savior to an unfaithful people and to the sinner, for the fulfilment of the promise sworn by God to David.  He is held by the Jews to have been killed as a martyr under king Manasseh.

The commemoration of Saint Herma, whom blessed Paul the Apostle remembers in his epistle to the Romans.


May Holy Mary and all the saints intercede to the Lord for us, that we may merit to be helped and saved by him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

V. Precious in the sight of the Lord

R. Is the death of his holy ones.

V. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.  And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in pace.

R. Amen
