The family of Loraine (Ivers ’81) Hoonhout invites all to join them in saying the following prayer to Servant of God Frank Duff (founder of the Legion of Mary). Please pray for Mrs. Hoonhout’s healing from cancer, especially and most urgently for the removal of a malignant tumor near her spinal cord.
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 petition we lay before You for the healing of Loraine Hoonhout in her struggle with cancer.
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.
