Those who would like to go on this pilgrimage but are unable to be present on this particular day are invited to say the following prayer for the canonisation of Matt Talbot: Lord, in your servant Matt Talbot you have given us a wonderful example of triumph over addiction, of devotion to duty, and of lifelong reverence for the Most Holy Sacrament. May his life of prayer and penance give us courage to take up our crosses and follow in the footsteps of Our Lords and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
