Prayer for the Canonization of
Blessed Anna Schaeffer

Oh Holy Trinity, Crown of all Sanctity! We beseech You, grant that Anna Schaeffer of Mindelstetten, Your faithful servant, will soon be venerated as a saint by the whole Church. Forever contemplating the love of Your Sacred Heart, she offered up her life and suffering nurtured by the power of Holy Communion, to You in penance.

Through her intercession, give renewed hope and trust to the suffering and all in need. Make her an example of giving life in willing suffering, and an example for all faithful that You, Almighty God, may be all the more glorified through her, You, who lives and reigns forevermore. Amen.

Anna Schaeffer was born on 18 February 1882 in Mindelstetten, Bavaria, Germany. She was paralyzed by an industrial accident in 1901. From her sick bed she carried out an apostalate through correspondence. She was known for her devotion to the Sacred Heart. Anna Schaeffer died on 5 October 1925 in Mindelstetten. She was beatified on 7 March 1999 by Pope John Paul II.
