Prayer for the Canonization of Fr. Solanus Casey

Solanus Casey

On the occasion of Father Solanus Casey's beatification, November 18, 2017, the following prayer for the canonization of this extraordinary Capuchin Franciscan priest and miracle worker may be recited for the cause of Blessed Casey and for one's own personal intentions. Blessed Father Solanus Casey, intercede for us.

Jesus, you made Fr. Solanus Casey an example
of humility, charity and selflessness.
He taught us that every human life
has value and dignity.
May we follow him in serving
the poor. the sick, the dying,
the despondent and the desperate.
Grant us, by his intercession,
and according to Your will,
the graces we implore...,
knowing that he will soon be
numbered among Your saints.

We ask this in Your name, 
through the intercession of Mary, 
Your Mother, Queen of heaven and earth. Amen.

Bl. Solanus Casey, you overcame adversity with humility in answering God’s call to the priesthood. May we, inspired by your example, persevere with equal love.
