Collect for the Feast of St. Maron
O Hope of the faithful and Strength of the weary, look kindly upon your Church which celebrates the Feast of our Father, Maron. You chose him to be a hermit whose life would be a hymn of knowledge and love. Make us worthy to fulfil your purpose as he did and to meet you when we enter your garden of delights. There, with all your good and faithful servants, we will offer you praise, now and forever.
