Servant of God, Dr. Jerome Lejeune

On my birthday last year, June 28, 2007, the cause for canonization of this saintly scientist was opened. Read the two posts at Unborn Word of the Day about the amazing career of Dr. Lejeune and his close friendship with Pope John Paul II.

My article includes this prayer for the intercession of Dr. Lejeune:

Prayer to Obtain Graces by God’s Servant’s Intercession
God, who created man in your image and intended him to share your glory,
We thank you for having granted to your Church the gift of professor Jerome Lejeune, a distinguished servant of life. He knew how to place his immense intelligence and deep faith at the service of the defense of human life, especially unborn life, always seeking to treat and to cure.

A passionate witness to truth and charity, he knew how to reconcile faith and reason in the sight of today’s world.
By his intercession, and according to your will, we ask you to grant us the graces we implore, hoping that he will soon become one of your saints.


As the cause for canonization of Lejeune moves forward, testimonies of medically inexplicable cures sought by his intercession will be recorded, and holy cards with this prayer are available at this address:

Postulation de la cause de béatification
et de canonisation du Serviteur de Dieu Jérôme Lejeune
Abbaye Saint-Wandrille F-76490
Saint-Wandrille, France.

I am asking the good doctor's intercession to help Christina with potty training, behavior, and speech development.

Through the mercy of God, I am praying for the intercession of Dr. Jerome Lejeune for my husband, John, who is in ICU with pneumonia, a ventilator tube, and several other health problems that he can soon wean off the ventilator, breath on his own, and recover his health.
