Feast of San Liberatore

Viva San Liberatore!
May 15th is the Feast Day of San Liberatore, Bishop and Martyr. Widely venerated across southern Italy, he is the principal patron of Ariano Irpino (AV), Torrecuso (BN) and Civitacampomarano (CB), among others. In commemoration, I’m posting a prayer in his honor. The accompanying photo was taken at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Belleville, New Jersey.
Prayer to San Liberatore
God our Father, enable us who honor the memory of San Liberatore, martyr and protector of Ariano Irpino, to share with him in the joy of eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
