The commemoration of St. Cleophas, the disciple of the Lord, whose heart burned while he was making a trip with another disciple, when the Lord appeared to them on the road Easter evening and opened the Scriptures to them, and who in the house at Emmaus knew the Savior in the breaking of the bread.
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.
