Servant of God Father Magin Catala O.F.M. preaching at the Mission


0 God, you sent your holy servant, Father Magin Catala, to preach your gospel to Native Americans, and you inspired him to glorify your holy name among them by the example of his eminent virtues. We humbly ask you to honor Father Catala on earth with the testimony of miracles performed through his intercession. Grant us by his merits all manner of blessings. Fill our minds with the light of your truth that, walking always in the way of your commandments, we may come to eternal union with you. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Imprimatur +Patrick J. McGrath
Bishop of San Jose
