Official prayer for the canonization of the 32 Blessed martyrs of Orange

24 janvier 2019

O Lord our God,
You have given your Church
the 32 Blessed Martyrs of Orange.
They lived the Christian vocation to which they had been called
by their Baptism and their religious consecration,
constantly seeking to do Your Will,
ultimately offering their own lives through faithfulness to Jesus.

Instil in us a burning desire
to live here on earth with our gaze turned towards Heaven,
so that one day we may,
along with them,
praise Your Mercy forever.

Through their intercession,
we ask You to grant us the grace to (express your prayer intention)
in the hope that soon we may see them declared holy.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Imprimatur Monseigneur Jean-Pierre Cattenoz, Archbishop of Avignon
