One calls upon Holy Guillaume to obtain the cure of the cataract.
Holy Guillaume was born in Paris in 1105; he made brilliant studies with the convent of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Initially canon with Holy-Genevieve, he withdrew himself then with the convent of the regular canons of Saint-Augustin.
The king of Denmark made request from Paris a personality able to reform a monastery fallen into the relaxation. Holy Guillaume was sent to fill this ungrateful task between all. The monks of the monastery, dissatisfied to be shaken and supervised, baited themselves to make him leave. But the patience of Holy Guillaume, his humility and his austerities changed finally the spirit of the monks who returned in the narrow way which it’s necessary to borrow to follow Jesus. God filled Holy Guillaume of his blessings, giving him the capacity to make miracles.
Lord, which are our God, make us the grace honor, by a devotion persevering, the virtues and the merits of Holy Guillaume, in order to obtain by his prayers the cure of the pains which torment us; make us especially the grace, Ô my God, to imitate during our life his humility and his charity, in order to also enjoy happiness to rent to you Amen during all Eternity by NR. – S.

Holy Guillaume, which like to cure their evils those which call upon you, request for us.
Ô Jesus, full with a tender solicitude for your disciples, you them known as to take care and request, in order to not fall into temptation. I beseech your help, Ô my Saver! Because I fear to find, in the things of the ground, an occasion of sin, and to succumb to the traps of the enemy, under the vain pretext of satisfy the legitimate needs for my body, from where I would be soon led to confuse what is holy with what isn’t it. My desires, which, without your help, are so capricious and so mobiles, are well easily soiled by the sin; and without an great attention of my share, the spiritual part of my being would materialize soon, while sticking to the ground: because as soon as my thought leans towards the things of the world, it’s diverted celestial goods; and well easily then the purity of my heart can be disturbed, and my will, which must be to you entirely devoted, can easily contract some stains. Amen.
