O God, Who made St. Ambrose a teacher of the Catholic faith and a model of apostolic courage, raise up more Church leaders after Your heart.
We humbly implore your mercy, Lord: protect us in all dangers by the prayers of St. Nicholas, that the way of salvation may lie open for us.
When will I come to the end of my pilgrimage and enter the presence of God?

Closing of the Year of Mercy
On Sunday, Nov. 20 (Solemnity of Christ the King) at the Cathedral in New Ulm, Bishop John LeVoir presided at the closing of the Holy Door to conclude the Year of Mercy. The faithful gathered for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, an opportunity for Confessions, singing of the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Benediction and Reposition, and Holy Mass.
As Holy Doors closed in churches and basilicas around the world, including in Rome, it is estimated that over 20 million people participated in the Church’s Jubilee Year of Mercy at the Vatican – and a billion people may have participated in churches worldwide.
