Prayer for the Canonization of Bl. J.H. Newman

Eternal Father, You led John Henry Newman to follow the kindly light of Truth, and he obediently responded to your heavenly calls at any cost. As writer, preacher, counsellor and educator, as pastor, Oratorian, and servant of the poor he laboured to build up your Kingdom. Grant that through your Vicar on Earth we may hear the words, ‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the company of the canonized saints.’

May you manifest your Servant’s (Blessed John Henry Newman) power of intercession by even extraordinary answers to the prayers of the faithful throughout the world. We pray particularly for our intentions in his name and in the name of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. Amen

I was glad to find your blog and to see the prayer for the canonization of Blessed John Henry Newman.

You might like to look at my website: www.newmanbiography.com I need to add to it the prayer for the canonization.

I also host a page, Cardinal Newman for Beginners, on Face Book.

God bless you, Fr. Juan
