Vale Fr. Peter McGrath, C.P.

3 March, 2018

Fr. Peter McGrath, C.P., died this morning, Saturday 3rd March, 2018.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.


All powerful God, grant to our brother, Peter, one with us in the sacred bonds of the Passion, forgiveness for his sins. His desire on earth was to be like Christ, your Son. May he rejoice in his presence and praise you for ever. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (Votive Mass for Deceased Members of the Congregation of the Passion, Passionist Sacramentary)

Blessed Dominic – Novena of Prayer

2 March, 2018


At the request of the Archbishop Bernard Longley of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, England, where Passionist Blessed Dominic Barberi ministered and died, a novena of prayer will be prayed in the Archdiocese and in religious communities of women, both active and contemplative, as well as in the Passionist communities in the United Kingdom and beyond, from 01 to 09 March 2018. The prayer intention of the novena is to petition God for a miracle that will lead to Blessed Dominic’s canonization.
We invite our Passionist religious and the worldwide Passionist Family to join in the novena.

O God who so lovingly raised Blessed Dominic
to the heights of holiness, learning and apostolic zeal
and made him a powerful minister of your mercy,
listen to our humble request.
We pray that you will in your goodness,
grant a miracle through the intercession of Blessed Dominic,
so that the Church may honour him on earth
and that many more people will come to know and invoke
the help of this faithful servant of the Church.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Mary, Mother of Holy Hope; pray for us
Blessed Dominic Barberi; pray for us.
