Blessed Basil A. Moreau, C.S.C.
PRAYER FOR THE CANONIZATION OF BLESSED BASIL MOREAU AND TO OBTAIN A FAVOR THROUGH HIS INTERCESSION
O God, you are most admirable in your saints.
We ask you to grant us,
through the intercession of Basil Moreau,
the Founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross,
the favor we ask…
so that he may be glorified in the Church,
and we may be led to imitate his virtues.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
PRAYER (From the Roman Missal)
O God, who in your ineffable Providence,
chose your priest, Blessed Basil,
to imitate the virtues of the Holy Family
and respond to the needs of the Church, grant,
we beseech you, that, supported by his prayers and example,
we may have the strength to boldly confess
the Cross of Christ as our only hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
A MOREAU PRAYER FOR THE STONEHILL COMMUNITY
Lord God, you filled the heart of Blessed Basil Moreau,
founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross,
with zeal for the proclamation of your kingdom
through the ministry of education.
Bless the Stonehill College community
with a desire for your truth, and a passion
to make you known, loved and served.
May we work together
to educate the mind and heart
of every member of our community.
May your gracious Spirit enable this
work of resurrection
in us so that we might bring light and hope to those in
darkness and proclaim your liberating love to all in need.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
