The Feast of Blessed Joseph Vaz, C.O., Priest
is today. There is information on him here, courtesy of the Oxford Oratory.
Prayers for his canonization would be most welcome. Here is a form which could be used:
O God of infinite goodness ! Full of confidence in Your kindness and the mercy which You showed to Your faithful servant, Blessed Joseph Vaz, we humbly implore You to inspire Holy Church to take into consideration the meritorious life and apostolic works of this servant of God and to grant to him the full honors of the altar and public devotion, if this be for Your greater glory and for our salvation, so that imitating his virtues and placing ourselves under his patronage, we will reach eternal glory. Amen.

O God, through the intercession of Blessed Joseph Vaz, grant me the grace of (name your request here).

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be

Prayers for the country he evangelized would also be welcome, as it seems that moves are being made to make things uncomfortable for anyone there who is not Buddhist..

It is also the feast of Pope St. Marcellus I, Martyr.
