O generous St. Alban, you took in and kept safe a holy priest who was fleeing persecution and you were martyred for your faith.
Look kindly upon (name person) and all who are fleeing persecution or are seeking refuge for any reason.
Ask the Lord to send angels to protect them and keep them safe from harm.
Pray for them, dear saint, along with the Blessed Virgin Mary, that they will have the strength, courage, and assistance they need to faithfully live each day in unfamiliar places far from their homes.
Pray that the Lord blesses them with all the help and assistance they need to adjust to new environments and cultures and with hope for a better future.
O holy martyr, keep them all in your prayers, and ask the Lord to allow them in time to either establish new homes or return to their homeland safely and resume their lives and livelihoods. Amen.
