O God, Father of mercy, You aroused in the heart of
your servant, Brother James, the magnanimous readiness
for a constant fulfillment of Your Holy Will, and for the

Let us imitate his example of generosity and self-sacrifice
with unceasing effort. Send us worthy men to carry on the

Father of pity,
You have risen in the heart
Of your servant, our Brother James
A magnanimous readiness to
Permanently fulfil your holy will

Help us, too, follow his example of magnanimity
And eagerly imitate his readiness of sacrifice.
