My Pope Philippines recognizes the importance of these laborers and their contributions to construction projects. So today, just in time for the feast of St. Dunstan, patron saint of locksmiths, blacksmiths, and metalworkers, we give you a prayer for St. Dunstan’s intercession and protection for these laborers.
Prayer to St. Dunstan
Hear, O Lord, the supplications your people make under the patronage of your bishop St Dunstan, and grant that they may rejoice in peace in this present life and find help for life eternal.
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. Amen.
