Prayer for the Intercession of His Grace, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre

 

O lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings, we implore in Thy Divine Kindness to finally bring to light the holiness and justice of Thy humble servant Marcel Lefebvre.  His earthy life was met with ignominy and scorn, in pattern to Thee, and all for Thee, O Christ, for whom he so valiantly fought, and whose Rights and Kingship he defended.  We beg Thee to manifest his holy intercession for us by granting us the petition we ask in his name, [ … ].  O Mary, Immaculate Queen and Mediatrix of all graces, please obtain for us from thy Divine Son that special grace by which thy servant, Marcel may be honored and glorified with the title of Saint.

 

Pater, Ave, Gloria.

Give us a mighty Faith that we may not falter; help us to do Thy Holy Will always, especially during these hours of grief and uncertainty. May Thy Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of Thy Holy Mother be our sure refuge in time and in eternity. Amen.
