Feast of Blessed Charles of Austria

Blessed Karl,

at great danger to yourself and your family, you worked diligently to end the incredible destruction and bloodshed of The Great War.

In spite of losing your crowns, your power, your country, your wealth, and your health, you never lost your profound trust in God.

Pray for us and for peace in our world torn by war, strive and terrorism.


O God, through the diversities of this world
you led Blessed Karl from this earthly realm
to the crown reserved for him in heaven.
Grant through his intercession
that we may become worthy of eternal life.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son,
Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
