Today is the Feast of Blessed Solanus Casey (1870 – 1957). Happy feast day! Based for much of his life at Saint Bonaventure Monastery in Detroit, Father Solanus Casey was a Capuchin priest who was known during his lifetime as a wonderworker, for his great faith, and for his abilities as a spiritual counselor, but especially for his great attention to the sick. He was beatified at a ceremony held at Ford Field in Detroit in 2017.
Today, please take a moment to pray for the canonization of Blessed Solanus, particularly if you have a special favor for which you require his heavenly help. And if that favor is granted? As a mark of gratitude, please inform those who are promoting his cause of canonization at: https://solanuscasey.org/favors. Let us pray:
O God, I adore You. I give myself to You.
May I be the person You want me to be,
and May Your will be done in my life today.
I thank You for the gifts You gave Father Solanus.
If it is Your Will, bless us with the Canonization of
Father Solanus so that others may imitate
and carry on his love for all the poor and
suffering of our world.
As he joyfully accepted Your divine plans,
I ask You, according to Your Will,
to hear my prayer for… [your intention]
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
“Blessed be God in all His Designs.”
Blessed Solanus Casey, pray for us!
