Prayer for the Canonization of Father Michael J. McGivney

I received an email from Michele asking if I would be interested in adding Father McGivney to my list of Canonization Causes on the sidebar. Of course! I am very interested. I don't know why I haven't added him earlier. There are also a few others who will be added in the near future.

Prayer for the Canonization of Father Michael J. McGivney

God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan, you called your priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, to be an apostle of Christian family life and to lead the young to the generous service of their neighbor. Through the example of his life and virtue may we follow your Son, Jesus Christ, more closely, fulfilling his commandment of charity and building up his Body which is the Church. Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may continue his work of caring for the needy and the outcast. We humbly ask that you glorify your servant Father Michael J. McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through his intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request) through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Father – Hail Mary – Glory be to the Father.
