From 26 February to 5 March, the Archbishop of Birmingham has asked all the parishes in his diocese and all Passionist communities and parishes to join in these 9 days of prayer, using the following prayer:
O God, who so lovingly raised Blessed Dominic
to the heights of holiness, learning and apostolic zeal
and made him a powerful minister of your mercy,
listen to our humble request.
We pray that you will, in your goodness,
grant a miracle through the intercession of Blessed Dominic,
so that the Church may further honour him on earth
and that many more people will come to know
and invoke the help of this faithful servant of the Church.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Mary, Mother of Mercy: pray for us
Blessed Dominic Barberi: pray for us
Blessed John Henry Newman: pray for us.
