Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed Frederic Ozanam
God, our Father, you alone have the power to bestow those precious gifts of yours which we rightly call
miracles. If it be your will, be pleased to grant such a gift on behalf of [NAME]. We humbly ask that you
grant this favor so that Blessed Frederic Ozanam may be canonized by our Holy Mother the Church. We
make this prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son.
Prayer of the Vincentian Family
Lord Jesus, you who willed to become poor,
give us eyes and a heart directed toward the poor;
help us recognize you in them —
in their thirst, their hunger, their loneliness, and their misfortune.
Enkindle within our Vincentian Family
unity, simplicity, humility,
and the fire of love
that burned in St. Vincent de Paul
Strengthen us, so that faithful to the practice of these virtues,
we may contemplate you and serve you in the person of the poor,
and may one day be united with you and them in your Kingdom.
