Prayer for the Intercession of Venerable Aloysius Schwartz

Almighty, ever-living God, giver of all good gifts, You have filled Venerable Al with an ardent love for You and for souls. You have inspired him to dedicate his life to relieve the suffering of the orphans, abandoned, the sick and the poor, especially the youth, which he did with all humility and courage until the end of his life. May his holy life of love and service to the poor be recognized by the Church through his beatification and canonization.

For your honor and glory, we pray that the life of Msgr. Al be an inspiration for us in striving for perfection in the love of God and service to others. Bestow on us, through his intercession (mention your intention here).  We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son and the maternal aid of Mary, the Virgin of the Poor. Amen.

Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be …
