Holy Abbots of Citeaux
you inspired your Saints Robert, Alberic and Stephen
with a love of silence, solitude and poverty.
By their prayer and example,
may we be drawn to closer union with You,
and we may always cherish you above all.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
