Prayer to St. Juan Diego on his Canonization

 

"Happy Juan Diego, true and faithful man!

We entrust to you our lay brothers and sisters so that, feeling the call to holiness, they may imbue every area of social life with the spirit of the Gospel.

Bless families, strengthen spouses in their marriage, and sustain the efforts of parents to give their children a Christian upbringing.

Look with favor upon the pain of those who are suffering in body or in spirit, on those afflicted by poverty, loneliness, marginalization or ignorance.

May all people, civic leaders and ordinary citizens, always act in accordance with the demands of justice and with respect for the dignity of each person, so that in this way peace may be reinforced."

--Blessed John Paul II, July 31, 2002
