Prayer for petition:

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, we gratefully acknowledge your plan for our salvation, even by working miracles through your chosen servants. We thank you for giving us your faithful servant, Ven. Agnelo, as an example of how to follow in the steps of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ. With our whole heart we pray that you may lead us through your Spirit to imitate his saintly life. Grant us also the favour we ask (mention the favour) as a sign that he now shares the Glory of our Risen Lord.

Prayer for the canonisation of Ven. Agnelo:

O God of infinite mercy, we humbly prostrate at your feet, we beg with wholehearted trust, that if it be your Holy Will, and if it serves our salvation, grant Ven. Agnelo the honours of the Altar, through the solemn declaration of Our Provident Mother, the Church. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

“The devotion of the THREE HAIL MARYS is a very simple and yet most efficacious devotion. Every day, recite Three Hail Marys, adding the invocation: ‘O Mary, my Mother, keep me from mortal sin.’ Many people recite the Three Hail Marys as part of their morning and night prayers. To practise this devotion in time of danger, stress, special need or temptation, is a sure means to obtain Our Lady’s help.

• My heartfelt thanks to Jesus and Mother Mary for the innumerable favours received and the blessings bestowed on my family through faithfully praying the 3 Hail Marys. Thank you Mother Mary for taking care of me during my illness and helping me to recover quickly. Also thanks for helping me to get a job soon. Both my sons are doing well now. Oh, mother, always protect our family from every danger and sickness. (E.D’C, Mumbai)

• While travelling by train I was struck on the head by a huge bundle of clothes from the rack above. I am in the habit of praying the 3 Hail Marys while I travel. I remained unharmed and I believe it was the gracious protection of Our Lady. I am most grateful. (M.P., Mumbai).
