One generally entrusts to Holy Eloi the protection of the cattle. He’s also called upon when one suffers from the kidneys.
Holy Eloi was born close to Limoges and each one knows his friendship with king Dagobert. But, though covered of goods and richnesses by the king, he distributed all to the poor and kept for him only the remainders when the poor had finished the meal that it was useful to them. He had to accept the load of bishop of Boundary-line where he continued his apostolate.
I beg you, Seigneur, God of kindness and truth, by the merits of Holy Eloi and those of all your saints, to condescend to grant your protection to this herd. Cure me, Seigneur, of these evils of kidneys from which I suffer so much. Lord, fulfill my prayer and that the Lord the Almighty and merciful grants my request to me that I present to him via Holy Eloi.
Great Holy Eloi, guard of the herds, if helpful with all those which call upon you with confidence, request for me.
My Lord and my God, I expose you the wounds of my heart: you are the salutary doctor, and I am sick; you are merciful, and I am miserable; and though you know my misery and my disease better than me, I feel it and recognize it in front of you. I acknowledge my unworthiness and my impotence; but if you throw the eyes on your Son Jesus-Christ, who spread his blood for my sins, you grant the grace to me that I ask you with humility by the sighs of my heart and the tears of my eyes. Amen.
