Dr. LeJeune was a Catholic physician who discovered the cause of Down syndrome. He is up for canonization. We invite you to pray for the healing of a cancer patient currently receiving chemotherapy.
Almighty God, who created man in your image and destined him to share your glory, we thank you for giving your Church the gift of Professor Jerome Lejeune, an exemplary Servant of Life. He humbly placed his immense intelligence and deep faith at the service of the defense of human life, especially unborn life, always seeking to treat and to cure those in need. A passionate proponent of truth and charity, he bore eloquent witness before the contemporary world to the harmony between faith and reason.
Through his intercession, we pray that you grant the favors we ask, if it is your will, in the hope that the Church may one day proclaim him Saint. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
