One calls upon Holy Mathias to be cured or preserved small pox or variola. He’s particularly honored in Rome, in the Holy-Marie-Major church where part of his relics is. This saint apostle evangelized Judaea during more than thirty years. His word, inspired of God, attracted all those to him which sought the truth. He trained many disciples whom he sent throughout the world to preach the Gospel of Jesus-Christ.
Lord, God of kindness, multiply on us your grace, since you multiplied near You the number of our intercessors, and grant to us in this cruel disease of the small pox all the helps until we wait and which we hope for of the prayers and the merits of Holy Mathias and holy Ritte, your pious maidservant.
We request some from you by N. S. J. – C. Amen.
Holy Mathias, which preserve or cure small pox, request for us, we beg you.
Oh! What a hello in the love of Jesus for us! The nail, the crown of spines, the wounds of Jesus, all shouts us that the God-man on the cross is a victim more than sufficient for our redemption. The pain, crossing his crowned body, penetrates to his heart, so that it’s impossible for him from now on not to have pity of our weakness: because on all his wounds we can read in visible characters for all the glances, that the Lord is soft, good and merciful towards us. Nobody, indeed, is merciful only that which gives his life to save the unhappy ones condemned to eternal death. Amen.
