Prayer for the

Canonization of Blessed Frédéric Ozanam

frederic-ozanam - Vincentian - family

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 those suffering.

In family life, he revealed a most genuine love as a son, brother, husband and father. In secular life, his ardent passion for the truth enlightened his thought, writing and teaching.

His vision for our society was a network of charity encircling the world, inspired by St. Vincent de Paul’s love, boldness and humility.

His prophetic social vision appears in every aspect of his life, together with the radiance of his virtues. We thank you Lord, for these many gifts. May the Church proclaim his holiness, as a saint, a providential light for today’s world!

We ask this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
