Blessed Basile Moreau’s Entry into Eternal Life
Blessed Basile Moreau
Loving God, 
you gave your servant, Blessed Basil Moreau, 
a burning desire to make you known, loved, and served, 
and inspired him to found a religious family 
zealous to respond to the needs of the Church 
and to extend the reign of Jesus Christ on earth. 
 
As we celebrate his entrance into eternal life, 
may we find inspiration in his holiness, 
consolation in his intercession, 
and strength in his fidelity to the Cross, 
so as to follow in the footsteps of your Son, 
who lives and reigns with you, 
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, 
God, forever and ever. Amen.

Lord Jesus,
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.
 
Lord Jesus,
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.
Amen.

Blessed Basile Moreau
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. 
Amen.
