(Private Devotion)

God our Father, you made Bishop Alphonse Gallegos a pastor of the Church to feed your sheep with his words and to teach them by his example. We pray that his life of holiness and service to the People of God be acknowledged and that this loyal son of Our Lady of Guadalupe be counted among the saints of your Kingdom.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

(Personal intention)

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory
