Dominican Tertiary and Doctor of the Church,
you were full of wisdom,
the special gift of God,
and you knew how to guide even Pontiffs,
as well as how to extinguish fiery passions
and restore true peace among people.
How inspiring your spiritual writings
and how heroic your abstemious life!
Fires are today unfortunately all too common,
including those caused by criminals.
Please protect and encourage firefighters
in their heroic efforts to save lives.
