            And you, Virgin Mother of God and our Mother, obtain from the Lord the beatification of your servant Bruno, who all his life loved you as a loyal son and zealously sought to lead others to you, and obtain for us through his intercession the grace that with great trust we ask of you… Our Father.  Hail Mary.  Glory Be.


Prayer for the intercession of Venerable Pio Bruno Lanteri

O Father, fountain of all life and holiness you gave Father Bruno Lanteri great faith in Christ, your Son, a lively hope, and an
active love for the salvation of his brethren. You made him a prophet of your Word and a witness to your Mercy. He had a tender love for Mary and by his very life he taught fidelity to the Church. Father, hear the prayer of your family and, through the intercession of Fr. Lanteri, grant us the grace for which we now ask…. May he be glorified on earth that we may give you greater praise.

We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.


Discernment Prayer to the Virgin Mary

Mother of Mercy, I place in you all the trust that a child places in his mother. I choose you as my loving Mother, and choose to depend on you in all my actions. I wish to discern at every moment what is most pleasing to you, that I may fulfill with all my strength what you choose for me. I desire to be totally available to your desire, and that my only desire be what you desire. Grant me the grace to follow your desires, and to love Jesus with your own most ardent heart.
