Prayer for the Canonization of Blessed John Duns Scotus

O Most High,
Almightily and gracious Lord,
Who exalts the humble and confounds the proud of heart,
grant us the great joy of seeing Blessed John Duns Scotus canonized.
He honored Your Son with the most sublime praises;
he was the first to successfully defend the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary;
he lived in heroic obedience to the Holy Father,
to the Church and to the Seraphic Order.
O most holy Father,
God of infinite love, hear,
we beseech You,
our humble prayer,
thorough the merits of Your Only-Begotten Son and His Mother,
the Gate of Heaven and Spouse of the Holy Spirit.
