Prayer for the Cause of Bishop Bruté

Heavenly Father,
source of all that is holy,
in every age, you raise up
men and women who live lives
of heroic love and service.

You have blessed your Church
through the life of Simon Bruté,
first bishop of Vincennes
and spiritual director
to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.
Through his prayer, his intellect,
his love, and his pastoral care,
Simon Bruté formed future priests
and guided your Church
in the early days of our country.

If it be your will,
may he be proclaimed a saint.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
our Lord. —Amen.

(Contributions to defray the expenses in furthering the Cause should be sent to Bishop Bruté Fund, Archdiocese of Indianapolis, P.O. Box 1410, Indianapolis, IN 46206.)

February 10th and 11th mark the deaths of two men who, although not officially canonized, are truly saints — Indiana saints.! I am speaking of Father Benjamin Marie Petit (1811-1839) and Father Anthony Deydier (1788-1864), both of whom were recruited by Bishop Bruté. I must say that these two men are among my ‘favorites’. Monday, […]
