O GOD, in Your Wonderful Providence, You have chosen Justus Takayama Ukon to be a singular promoter of Your Kingdom, and an undaunted witness to the Catholic Faith —
REWARD, we beseech You, his zeal for Your Glory,
and graciously grant us what we humbly ask
through his intercession.
GRANT us also that, following his example,
we may bravely bear all trials
for the sake of our holy Catholic Faith.
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen. ◘
