The musings and meandering thoughts of a crotchety old man as he observes life in the world and in a small, rural town in South East Nebraska. My Pledge-Nulla dies sine linea-Not a day with out a line.
Prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God Zita, Empress
God our Father, you redeemed the world by the humility of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. He who was King became a Servant and gave his life as a ransom for many, therefore you have exalted Him.
We ask you that your servant Zita, Empress and Queen, will be raised to the altars of your Church. In her, you have given us an admirable example of faith and hope in the face of trials, as well as an unshakeable confidence in your Divine Providence.
We beseech You that alongside her husband, the Blessed Emperor Charles, Zita will become, for couples, a model of conjugal fidelity and love, and, for families, a guide in the ways of a truly Christian upbringing. May she who in all circumstances opened her heart to the needs of others, especially the very poor, be for us all an example of service and love of neighbour.
Through her intercession, grant our petition (mention here the graces you are asking for). Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
One Our Father, three Hail Marys and a Glory Be.
Kindly inform the Abbaye Saint-Pierre (F-72300 Solesmes) of any grace or favour obtained through the intercession of the Servant of God Zita.
