A Prayer for Jordan Awareness Week

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, you called Father Francis of the Cross Jordan to be your apostle, to make God known and loved by all people everywhere, using all the means your love inspires.

You filled him with universal apostolic zeal, with a deep trust in God’s loving providence, with a profound spirit of prayer, with a sincere devotion to Mary, Mother of the Savior, and with the courage to follow you, even into the mystery of the Cross.

Grant that he be recognized as a saint for the universal church. Grant also to us, his followers, the grace to proclaim the gospel in this spirit and make us effective apostles in today’s world.¬†Through the intercessions of your servant Father Francis Jordan, we ask you for our special needs.

We present this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit now and always.
