Loving God, we thank you for the gift of Blessed Benedict Daswa, a man of deep faith, fearless courage and generous charity. We give you praise for his wonderful example as a devoted family man, educator and faithful catechist.

Led by your Holy Spirit, Blessed Benedict remained faithful to your Gospel of truth and goodness in the face of violent opposition and hatred.  May the example of his generous sacrifice inspire us to grow in appreciation of the sacredness of every human life.

Listen favourably, we pray, to the intercessions of Blessed Benedict on behalf of your faithful people who seek healing, strength and courage.  May his prayers obtain for us the miracles needed for your Church to proclaim him a saint of our time and apostle to our present world.

We make this prayer through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.
