Lord God,
you called Melchior de Marion Brésillac to serve You.
To make you known and loved
you sent him to India and then to Africa.
For you, he gave everything,
even his very life.

So that his life and teaching
may inspire a missionary commitment in Christians today,
we trust that the Church will recognize
the holiness of this great servant of the mission
and that, by his intercession, 
we will receive the graces
of which we have need. (In particular…)

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
