Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed Louis Brisson, OSFS
Lord Jesus, Who has told us “Ask and you shall receive,” we address our prayer to You through the intercession of Blessed Louis Brisson. Attentive to the signs of the times and in obedience to Your Will, he founded the double family of the Oblate Sisters and of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. Confident in Your Providence and joyful in hope, he knew, as a good Father, how to make himself all things to all people. Grant us, through his intercession, the favors which we ask of You, Especially……May the Holy Church rejoice in glorifying this priest after Your own Heart, who gave himself totally to Your Love.
