It is common practice among Christians to ask one another to pray for a particular need, “Please pray for me.” Prayer is directed to God. So in the case of Suzanne Aubert, our friend, we are asking her to join us in praying for a particular need.
A fundamental belief of Catholics is the Communion of Saints. We recite that belief in the Nicene Creed every Sunday at Mass. We believe that it is possible to ask Saints and those who have been declared Venerable, to intercede on our behalf to God, for special intentions that we have. As Father Carmody has reminded us, the next major milestone on the journey to sainthood is for the approval of a miracle through the intercession of Venerable Suzanne Aubert.
We all believe in miracles and that God does listen to those who pray earnestly and with an unwavering faith. (John 14:13).
There are a number of people around the country who are praying the special intercessory prayer for God to grant a miracle through the intercession of Suzanne Aubert. In His time, God will grant one of those miracles.
There is a special formula that must be followed when praying for intercession of Suzanne Aubert. We are keen for many more New Zealanders to join us in prayer.
