What a great Christmas gift we have just received!
Today, we have received news that our Holy Father, Pope Francis, on December 18, 2017 declared Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C. “Venerable.”
Prayer for the Beatification of
Venerable Patrick Peyton
Dear Jesus, Father Peyton devoted his priestly life
to strengthening the families of the world by calling
them to pray together every day, especially the Rosary.
His message is as important for us now as it was during
his life on earth.
We beg you, therefore, to hasten the day of his beatification,
so that your faithful people everywhere will remember
his message that the family that prays together stays together,
will imitate him in his devotion to your Mother and ours,
and will be inspired by his holy life to draw ever closer to you
with childlike confidence and love. Amen.
