Prayer for the beatification of Dr. José Gregorio Hernández

Dr. Jose Gregorio HernandezOh, merciful God,
You have deigned to choose the Venerable Dr. José Gregorio Hernández
That, moved by your grace,
he could practice since childhood the most heroic virtues,
Especially a burning faith,
an angelic purity
And an enlightened Charity
This being the steps by which his soul flew to your divine encounter
When you received the holocaust of his life,
Grant soon that the aura of saints may shine on above forehead,
if it is for your greater glory and that of the Holy Church
Amen
