Pray for Us Sinners, Pray for Our Saints

Our Pauline Family has several beloved founding members who have gone to their final rest and whose cause for canonization has been introduced in the Catholic Church. Today we begin a bi-monthly feature asking that these Paulines be glorified in heaven, as we ask them to intercede for us on earth. 

After this week, look for this feature to appear on the right column of this blog, every first and third Friday of the month.
Blessed James Alberione

Prayer for the canonization of Blessed James Alberione
[1] We invite you to join Paulines around the world in praying for the complete healing of Christina Dangond, the daughter of members of the Holy Family Institute, from all of her cancer.
Most Holy Trinity, who has willed to revive in the Church the apostolic Charism of St. Paul, revealing yourself in the light of the Eucharist to Blessed James Alberione, founder of the Pauline Family, grant that the presence of Christ the Master, Way, Truth and Life, may shine in the world through Mary, Mother and Queen of the Apostles.
Glorify in your Church this apostle of the new evangelization, and raise up men and women open to the "signs of the times" who, following his example will use the modern means of communication to lead all of humanity to you.
Through the intercession of Blessed James grant me the grace that I ask for at this time, [1]. 
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
