Kinh ông Thánh Mátthêu
Kính lạy Thánh Mátthêu vinh hiển, ngài đã được gọi từ người thu thuế để trở nên người tông đồ nhiệt thành của Chúa Giêsu. Xin cầu cho chúng con chớ có lòng ham mê của cải đời này, và sống đời sống liêm khiết. Xin cầu cho chúng con biết chia sẻ của cải với người nghèo khó, vì những gì chúng con làm cho một trong những người anh em bé mọn là làm cho Chúa, và xin cầu cho chúng con được ơn thấy Chúa Giêsu đang sống trong Giáo hội của Ngài, và làm theo lời Người dạy trong đời sống của chúng con trên trần gian, để chúng con mai ngày sẽ được sống đời đời với Người trên thiên đàng. Amen.
Kinh ông Thánh Mátthêu
Lạy ơn ông thánh Mátthêu, xưa đã nghe thấy Đức Chúa Giêsu phán rằng: Bay là kẻ đã bỏ mọi sự thế gian mà theo ta, đến sau được lãi trăm phần trọng hơn, cùng sẽ được hằng sống vô cùng. Chúng con xin ông thánh Mátthêu cầu cho chúng con, đáng chịu lấy những sự Chúa Kitô đã hứa. Chúng con xin Đức Chúa Trời nghe lời ông thánh Mátthêu tông đồ Đức Chúa Giêsu cầu cho chúng con. Mà ban mọi ơn lành cho chúng con, là những sự chẳng có lẽ nào, cho chúng con đáng chịu vì sức chúng con. Vì Đức Chúa Giêsu Kitô là Chúa chúng con. Amen.
