Prayer for the canonization of Blessed Frederic Janssoone

Almighty and eternal God,
You granted to Blessed Frederic Janssoone,
son of France,
to follow the footsteps of your Son Jesus
in the Holy Land,
and to work there for peace.

Then You led him to Canada,
to invite that nation
to be generous toward the Holy Land,
to found the Sanctuary of the Cap-de-la-Madeleine,
and to better make known
the life of Jesus of Nazareth and His most holy Mother.

Grant us to become in turn,
true pilgrims,
and veritable missionaries of your Church.
That we also may be equally
solid pillars of the faith in our Christian communities.

Grant us, through his intercession,
the favor that we ask…

(Silent pause)

Grant this son of Saint Francis of Assisi,
to be canonized soon,
and to draw us all toward Your Son
Jesus, Our Lord.

Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be to the Father…
(Veneration of the Relic or touch the Tomb).
