Novena to Blessed John Duns Scotus

Day 2

Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed John Duns Scotus

O Most High, Almighty and gracious Lord,
Who exalts the humble and confounds the proud of heart,
grant us the great joy of seeing Blessed John Duns Scotus canonized.

He honoured Your Son with the most sublime praises;
he was the first to defend successfully
the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary;
he lived in heroic obedience to the Holy Father,
to the Church and to the Seraphic Order.

O Most Holy Father, God of infinite love,
hear, we beseech You, our humble prayer,
through the merits of Your Only-Begotten Son and of His Mother,
Coredemptrix and Spouse of the Holy Spirit.


Triduum to Implore Graces from Blessed John Duns Scotus

O worthy defender of the exalted Mother of God,
who wished always to ascribe to Her what seemed to you most excellent,
and who edified the world with the constant practice of the most beautiful virtues,
deign from heaven, where you enjoy the reward of your most holy life,
to turn your merciful gaze toward me,
who confides in you, and grant me the grace for which I humbly askā€¦

Our Father

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.


Glory Be

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be,
world without end.
