Prayer for the canonization of Blessed Basile Moreau and to obtain a favor through his intercession

Lord Jesus, source of all that is good, you inspired Blessed Basile Moreau to found the religious family of Holy Cross to continue your mission among the People of God.

May he be for us a model of the apostolic life, an example of fidelity and an inspiration as we strive to follow you. May the Church be moved to proclaim his saintliness for the good of all people.

Lord Jesus, you said, “ Ask and you shall receive. ” I dare to come to you to ask that you hear my prayer. It is through the intercession of Blessed Basile Moreau that I ask…

May I learn to imitate his holiness and service and look to him confidently in times of need. Amen
