St Robert was a wise and holy man who had great love and reverence of Holy Church, Her nature and Her Teachings. He was a theologian, bishop and cardinal.
V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come unto thee.
Let us pray
O God, who didst endow blessed Robert, thy bishop and doctor, with wondrous learning and strength to foil the wiles of error and to defend the rights of the Holy See
grant through his merits and intercession that we may grow in the law of truth, and that the hearts of those gone astray may return to the unity of Church
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
