The healing of a patient entrusted to the Intercession of Ozanam

In a message sent to the International General Council, Fr. Jean-Marie Dubois, Promoter of the Causes of Saints for the Diocese of Paris, informs us that he asked to pray, through the intercession of Blessed Frederic Ozanam, for François-Xavier, a cancer patient. "I wish that all the friends of Frédéric Ozanam share this intent widely," he concludes.

In response to this request, the General Council launchs a prayer chain and invites Vincentians from all over the world to recite the prayer to Blessed Ozanam every day by naming the favor that is desired: the healing of François-Xavier

Prayer:

In the hope of obtaining a miracle through his intercession

Lord,

You made Blessed Frédéric Ozanam a witness of the Gospel, full of wonder at the mystery of the Church.
You inspired him to alleviate poverty and injustice and endowed him with untiring generosity in the service of all who were suffering.
In family life, he revealed a most genuine love as a son, brother, husband and father.
His vision for our society was a network of charity encircling the world and he instilled St Vincent de Paul’s spirit of love, boldness and humility.
His prophetic social vision appears in every aspect of his short life, together with the radiance of his virtues.
We thank you Lord, for those many gifts and we ask, if it is your will, the healing of François-Xavier, through the intercession of Blessed Frédéric Ozanam.

May the Church proclaim his holiness, as a saint, a providential light for today’s world!
We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
