Cardinal W.J. Eijk, Metropolitan Archbishop of Utrecht
Prayer for the furthering of the Beatification of the Servant of God, Dora Visser.
God, ever good,
In a special way you allowed Dorothea Visser to share in the suffering of your Son, Jesus Christ.
Already at a young age she experienced what it is to be misunderstood and not accepted by family and community.
She also suffered greatly through painful bodily afflictions and conditions.
We pray that she may intercede for us, for all our family, friends and associates, and for those who go burdened by suffering, illness and rejection.
Furthermore, we pray that Dorothea Visser may soon be beatified and raised to the altar.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Utrecht, on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, 14 September 2011
With ecclesial approval, Card. W.J. Eijk
