source of all that is good,
you inspired Basile Moreau
to found the religious family of Holy Cross
to continue your mission among the People of God.
May he be for us a model of apostolic life,
an example of fidelity,
and an inspiration as we strive to follow you.
you said, “Ask and you shall receive.”
We come to ask you that you hear our prayer.
It is through the intercession of Basile Moreau that we ask…
May we learn to imitate his holiness and service
and look to him confidently in times of need.
O God, who in your ineffable Providence,
chose your priest, Blessed Basile,
to imitate the virtues of the Holy Family
and respond to the needs of the Church, grant,
we beseech you, that,
supported by his prayers and example,
we may have the strength to boldly confess
the Cross of Christ as our only hope.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
