"In memoria aeterna erit justus."
22nd anniversary of the death in the Lord of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, founder of the priestly society of St Pius X, Defender of the Faith.

Requiescat in Pace. Santo Subito!
PRAYER FOR THE CANONIZATION OF HIS GRACE ARCHBISHOP MARCEL LEFEBVRE
O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, who didst deign to raise Thy faithful servant Marcel Lefebvre to the Episcopal dignity and to grant him the grace of being a fearless defender of the Holy Mass, of the Catholic Priesthood, of Thy Holy Church, and of the Holy See, of being a courageous apostle of Thy Kingdom on earth, of being a devoted servant of Thy holy Mother, and of being a shining example of charity, of humility and of all virtues; bestow upon us now, by his merits, the graces we beseech of Thee, so that, assured of his efficacious intercession with Thee, we may one day see him raised to the honours of our altars. Amen.
