Bl. Antonio Rosmini

Background: Blessed Antonio (1797-1855) was born at Rovereto, Austria. He studied at the University of Padua, was ordained a Priest in 1821 and awarded a Doctorate in Theology and Canon Law in 1822. Blessed Antonio became a well-known philosopher and the founder of the Rosminians (Institute of Charity). His driving principle was to “do good because of a desire to do the will of God” rather than to appease one’s own motive. Blessed Antonio was beatified by Pope Benedict in 2007. His Feast Day is the 9th of July.


Novena For Missing Children

Cross-RedLord, we pray that you look with favour on the cause of your servant, Blessed Antonio Rosmini. In your loving kindness, please remember his total faith and abandonment to Divine Providence, his love of Holy Mother Church and his boundless works of charity as he laboured tirelessly here on earth in union with your son, Jesus. Grant us the grace, which we ask through his intercession, to have his sanctity revealed to us.

Most Holy Mother of Sorrows, to whom Blessed Rosmini consecrated his Institute of Charity, we pray you to intercede with your Son, our Lord, to hear our humble prayers, Amen.

We pray that Blessed Rosmini will act on our behalf, praying with us, as we earnestly ask that Our Lord, to whom each child is precious, will return … (Name) … and all missing children to their families. We also pray that the Church will seek every means possible to highlight the plight of missing and exploited children throughout the world.

Pray: Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…….

… Blessed Antonio Rosmini, Pray for Us …
