Prayer for the beatification of the Servant of God Mother Leonia
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we thank you for the life and evangelical testimony of Mother Leonia, your faithful servant who followed in the footsteps of Jesus Missionary and Redeemer. To respond to the needs of the Church and the world, she consecrated herself to evangelization and works of mercy towards the poorest, always seeking your glory and the salvation of her brothers and sisters. Grant us her glorification on earth and give us the special grace we ask of you for his intercession…
Hear us, Lord our God, who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen!

Prayer for vocations
With Mother Leonia we ask: “Our Father who art in heaven, so that your name may be sanctified, give us missionary vocations. So that there is no lack of workers for your vineyard and we can be apostles of good, give us holy vocations. So we can fight against all evil and spread the gospel of peace and love. Give us, Lord, holy and decisive vocations”. Amen. (Mother Leonia, 1980).
Filial and apostolic prayer to the Heart of Mary of St. Anthony Maria Claret
O Virgin and Mother of God!,
you know well that we are your children and your ministers,
formed by yourself
in the forge of your mercy and your love.
We are like an arrow poised in your mighty hand.
Cast us, our Mother,
against everything that opposes the Kingdom of God.
Trusting in your protection,
we proclaim the Gospel
without other weapons than the divine Word,
without other titles than being children of your Immaculate Heart.
Victory, Mother, will be yours.
