PRAYER FOR THE CAUSE OF BEATIFICATION OF BISHOP ANTHONY GOGO NWEDO, C.S.Sp
O God, you who inspired your servant Anthony Gogo Nwedo, as the pioneer Bishop of the Diocese of Umuahia to dedicate his life selflessly to the cause of winning souls for Christ and to found two Religious Congregations for fostering holiness of life and the work of evangelization, hasten the day when the Church will be able to celebrate the saintliness of his life.
May the example of his personal sanctification and commitment to the spreading of the Gospel among the poor lead a great number of Christians to ever strive after holiness of our time and devote themselves to the work of spreading the Gospel, so that the men and women of our time and future generations may discover your infinite mercy revealed in Mary, our beloved Mother, and her Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with ou in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
