A Prayer for the Canonization of Bl. John Duns Scotus (feast day is November 8th):  O most High, Almighty and gracious Lord, who exalt the humble and confounded the proud of heart, grant us the great joy of seeing blessed John Duns Scotus canonized. He honored Your Son with the most sublime praises; he was the first to successfully defend the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary; he lived in heroic obedience to the holy father, to the Church, and to the Seraphic Order.

O most holy Father, God of infinite love, here, we beseech You, our humble prayer, through the merits of Your Only-begotten Son and of His Mother, Coredemptrix and Spouse of the Holy Spirit.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.

    Champion of the Immaculate Conception AND of the Primacy of our Lord’s love for us. How jealous is our Lord! That He cannot bear for anything to stand between Him and us. “Remain in me, as I remain in you” (John 15:4) .

    How tender is His love for us! Even when our Lord urges us to “turn and become like children” (Matthew 18:3-5), even in this our Lord leads by example, bending to the earth through His Incarnation as a mere babe in a manger. As His beloved Apostle again wrote, “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). We are nothing and what little we have to offer, comes from Him.

    Oh, how precious and humbling is the fleeting glimpse that the ‘Subtle Doctor’ affords us into the immense love of our Lord!
    Dear Lord, indeed, grant us the great joy of seeing blessed John Duns Scotus canonized for it will surely serve to glorify Your incredible love for us.
    Bl. John Duns Scotus, pray for us.
