Novena of Prayer for the Cause of Canonisation of Blessed Dominic Barberi

18th March 2019

Message from Bernard Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham

The annual Diocesan Novena of Prayer for the Cause of Canonisation of Blessed Dominic Barberi begins on Wednesday 20th March and concludes on Friday 29th March. I would be very grateful if you and your parishioners could join me in the Novena by using the following prayer:

O God, who so lovingly raised Blessed Dominic to the heights of holiness, learning and apostolic zeal and made him a powerful minister of your mercy, listen to our humble request. We pray that you will, in your goodness, grant a miracle through the intercession of Blessed Dominic, so that the Church may further honour him on earth and that many more people will come to know and to invoke the help of this faithful servant of the Church. This we ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Mother of Holy Hope: pray for us. Blessed Dominic Barberi: pray for us. Blessed John Henry Newman: pray for us.
