One calls upon Holy Goulven for the cure of the bruises and the blows to the head.
Holy Goulven was an Irish missionary who came to French evangelize the pagan tribes.
He founded some monasteries and left everywhere traces of his passage by conversions which he operated and the miracles that God allowed him to make.
Lord, my God, lend the ear to my supplication and have pity of me. In your infinite mercy and your great kindness, give me the cure which I beseech of you with humility. By the intercession of your saints and particularly of Holy Goulven, I beg you to cure me.
To make crosses on the bruises, while saying, with each sign of cross:
Holy Goulven, cured me.
Lord, everyone is in front of you as this small grain which gives hardly the least slope to the balance, and as a dewdrop of the morning which falls on the ground. But you have compassion of all the men; because you can all and that you dissimulate their sins, so that they make penitence. Because you like all that is, and don’t hate anything of all that you did; if you had it hate, you wouldn’t have created it. Is there something which can remain, if you don’t want it, or who can be preserved without your order? But you are lenient towards all, because all is with you, Ô Lord, which like to save the hearts. Amen.
