Ave Maria! For Scotus Month: During the the Newman-Scotus Symposium in Washington, DC on Oct 22, Fr. James McCurry makes the first public recitation of the new prayer to obtain the canonization of Bl. John Newman and Bl. John Duns Scotus. Please follow along using the subtitles in the video. The text has also been provided below. Bls. Newman and Scotus pray for us! Prayer to Obtain the Canonization of Bl. John Henry Newman (1801-1890) and Bl. John Duns Scotus (1265-1308) Heavenly Father, the two great Oxford scholars, Bl. John Duns Scotus and Bl. John Henry Newman, spent their lives in the service of Holy Mother Church and the salvation of souls. With courageous loyalty to the truth and exemplary obedience to the Church they sought to show how best to sanctify the intellect in the pursuit of holiness and wisdom. The insights of Bl. John Duns Scotus into the mystery of divine love and the Incarnation, his profound understanding of and devotion to the Immaculate Virgin Mother, his defense of the Holy Eucharist and the Church; the sage counsels of Bl. John Henry on living our faith in a radically secularized world and his deeply moving illustrations of our hope inspire us to ask you, the Giver of all good gifts, to grant that these two great examples of Christian virtue and learning might soon be counted among the Saints to be imitated by the faithful. Through the intercession of Bl. Scotus we ask you for this favor.... Through the intercession of Bl. Newman we ask you for this favor.... In all this, may we learn to speak "heart to heart" with Jesus through Mary and pass from "shadows and images into the Truth", your Son and our Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen Please report any favors received from either Bl. Scotus or Bl. Newman to: The Very Reverend James McCurry, OFMConv. 12300 Folly Quarter Rd. Ellicott City, MD 21042 IMPRIMATUR + Edwin F.
