Prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God, Frank Duff.

God our Father, You inspired your servant Frank Duff with a profound insight into the mystery of your Church, the Body of Christ, and of the place of Mary, the Mother of Jesus in this mystery.

In his immense desire to share this insight with others, and in filial dependence on Mary, he formed her Legion to be a sign of her maternal love for the world, and a means of enlisting all her children in the Church's evangelizing work.

We thank you Father, for the graces conferred on him, and for the benefits accruing to the Church from his courageous and shining faith.

With confidence we beg you, that through his intercession you grant the petititon we lay before you.....

We ask too, that if it be in accordance with your will, the holiness of his life may be acknowledged by the Church for the glory of your Name, through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Prayer for the Beatification of Venerable Edel Quinn

Eternal Father, I thank you for the grace you gave to your servant, Edel Quinn, of striving to live always in the joy of your presence, for the radiant charity infused into her heart by your Holy Spirit, and for the strength she drew from the Bread of Life to labour until death for the glory of your name, in loving dependence on Mary, Mother of the Church.

Confident, O Merciful Father, that her life was pleasing to you, I beg you to grant me, through her intercession, the special favour I now implore..., and to make known by miracles the glory she enjoys in Heaven, so that she may be glorified also by your Church on earth, through Christ, Our Lord, Amen.

Prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God, 
Alphonsus Lambe

O God, who by your infinite mercy inflamed the heart of Alphonsus Lambe with an ardent love for you and for Mary, Our Mother; a love which revealed itself in a life of intense labour, prayer, and sacrifice for the salvation of souls, grant, if it be your will, that we may obtain, by his intercession, what we cannot obtain by our own merits. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
