Fr Piotr Skarga’s Prayer for Homeland

O God, Ruler and Lord of nations,
release us not from your hand and discipline,
and through the intercession of the Blessed Virign, our Queen,
bless our land so that she, always faithful to you,
may praise your name
and lead her sons toward happiness.

O almighty, eternal God,
favour us with broad and deep love for our brethren
and the dearest mother, our land,
so that we, forgetting our benefits,
may honestly serve her
and your people.

Send the Holy Spirit upon your servants,
governing our country,
so that they, according to your will,
may wisely and fairly guide
your people, entrusted to them.

Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
