One calls upon Holy Efflam against the érésipèle. Holy Efflam was born in Greece. His faith and his zeal pushed him with evangelize the cruel countries. He arrived to French, not far from Paris, and converts the inhabitants of the region who, in the sight of the miracles which he made, accepted his God and converted.
Great Holy Efflam, worthy between all the saints to be venerated and called upon, for the excellence of your virtues and your merits, I entreat you to grant the cure to me. Lord, my God, in your infinite kindness, take pity of me and grant to me the cure that I ask you via Holy Efflam.
Holy Efflam, helpful with all those which suffer, cure, request me for me.
If I returned to my slanderers insult for insult; if I should excavate in the most secret history of their life, to publish shame and the infamy of him; if I sought their imposture, by learning with the public that their manners must make lose any credit with their speeches; so to justify to me in front of the men, I overpowered them invectives, and returned to me guilty of hatred and revenge in front of you: then, large God, I would deserve that your justice left me between the hands of their fury and their impostures. But since, in spite of the outburst of my persecutors, my heart always preserved for them this charity which we owe with those same which outragent us, since the prayers that I address to you every the day for their conversion are only revenge that I allow myself: you thus raise, large God, hasten you to help me. Exert on them visible and salutary punishments, which remind them the truth and justice, and which is rather the effects of your mercy that the signs of your anger. Amen.
