I rarely ask for prayers for myself on this site. However I am having an ongoing problem that is proving difficult to resolve in a timely manner. I would be most grateful if anyone could offer some prayers for this intention, both that the problem is resolved speedily and that I may persevere with more patience if it is not. Perhaps you may even wish to use the original private prayer for Fr Doyle’s intercession authorised by the Church many years ago.
O Jesus, who has given us the example of Your servant, Father William Doyle, graciously grant us the favours we ask You through his intercession…[Make petition.]
Teach us to imitate his love for You, his heroic devotion to Your service, his zeal for repairing the outrages done to Your glory and for the salvation of souls. Hear our prayer and show us the credit he now enjoys in heaven so that we may soon be able to venerate him in public worship.”
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
On this note, it is worth remembering that Fr Doyle is a powerful intercessor. In the 14 years after his death there were 6,426 reported alleged favours through his intercession. Some of them are detailed at the end of this booklet: Fr Willie (1931) While some of the “favours” are trivial, not all of them are, and the sheer number from across the world is an indication of the trust many had in Fr Doyle’s intercession for them.
