Prayer for the Duce (1935)

Jesus
to the Duce of Italy
to this creature of Yours
who rose from the humility of labour
to the responsibility and glory of power
grant the grace to serve You
through the Fatherland
for many years to come
with pure soul
illuminated by Your light
for religious peace
for devotion to our King
for the greatness of our Land.
Thus I beg You, O Jesus
for Him who gave peace back to the Church
serenity and harmony to the families
respect and love for Your Holy Faith to the Italians.

Amen.
