Eternal Father, we beg of you the favor of the beatification and canonization of your servant, John Merlini. We ask that you place upon his life and work in honor of the Precious Blood the stamp of divine approval, that those who venerate him and seek his intercession may glorify you by imitation of his virtues. Grant us an abundance of the graces flowing from the Blood of your Son; bestow upon us the spirit of his love, so that we may truly promote the divine glory in the apostolate of the Precious Blood with the zeal of Saint Gaspar and Venerable John Merlini. This we ask through Christ our Lord.
Mary, our Queen and Mother, all-powerful in intercession with your Son, obtain for us through the priesthood of Christ in his glory the favor we ask for our beloved father, the zealous priest, John Merlini.
