Prayer for the Cause of Canonization of Servant of God Father Stanley Rother

O God, fount of all holiness,
make us each walk worthily in our vocation,
through the intercession of your Saints,
on whom you bestowed
a great variety of graces on earth.
Having graced Your Church
with the life and ministry of
Your missionary priest
Stanley Rother,
by his intercession
grant that this humble flock may reach
where the brave Shepherd has gone.
Grant that Your Church may proclaim
him a Saint
Serving in Your presence and interceding for us.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
