God Our Father,
You filled the life of Your servant
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
with a sense of wonder and joy,
and gave him a faith which was
the foundation of his ceaseless work,
a charity towards all men,
particularly his opponents,
and a hope which sprang from
his lifelong gratitude for the gift of human life.

May his innocence and his laughter,
his constancy in fighting for the Christian faith
in a world losing belief,
his lifelong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary
and his love for all men,
especially for the poor,
bring cheerfulness to those in despair,
conviction and warmth to lukewarm believers
and the knowledge of God to those without faith.

We beg Thee to grant the favours we ask
through his intercession,
the end of abortion in this Country
so that his holiness may be recognised by all
and the Church may proclaim him Blessed.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
