SUFFOLK CHAPTER KofC
Founding to the Future
Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed Michael McGivney
God, our Father, protector of the poor and defender of the widow and orphan,
you called your priest, Blessed Michael 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 Blessed Michael McGivney on earth according to the design of your holy will.
Through his intersession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request).
Through Christ our Lord. Amen
