Prayer for beatification of Father Jerzy Popiełuszko

O my God! Thou art infinitely good. You gave Your servant Jerzy Popiełuszko the grace of consecration as an ordained priest until his martyr death. Please grant the request we now make with the words of Pope John Paul II “so that good was born out of this death as the Resurrection from the Cross”. Make Father Popiełuszko, a steadfast defender of rights of God and people, given to our Homeland and the whole world as a sign of victory of love over hatred, be elevated to the glory of holiness. Merciful God, give me grace I sincerely ask You through intercession of the God’s Servant Father Popiełuszko. Let His sacrifice of life and His intercession to You, God, contribute to the increase of Christian faith, unity and peace in the world. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Approved by Cardinal Józef Glemp, the Primate of Poland, 7 March 1997, No. 736/NK/97.
