Prayers for Bishop Brute

It has been a busy month! I have not posted anything for some time. It is probably appropriate to remember what we are all about. Here are two prayers, found on the website of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. They are prayers for the Canonization of Bishop Brute and a prayer to obtain favors through Bishop Brutés intercession.

Prayer to Obtain a Favor Through the Intercession of the Servant of God Bishop Simon Bruté

Father in heaven,
you give us every blessing
and shower us with your grace
through our savior, Jesus Christ,
and the working of the Holy Spirit.
If it be according to your will,
glorify your servant Simon Bruté
by granting the favor I now request
through his prayerful intercession:
(Mention your request.)
I make this prayer confidently
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Prayer for the Canonization of the Servant of God Bishop Simon

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.
