God our Father, your servant Joseph De Piro
gave witness to the faith
by his service to the poor and his missionary zeal.
May his loyalty to Christ and the Church,
his love for Mary, the Immaculate Mother of God,
his benevolence towards the orphaned
and his constant aspiration to evangelize the world,
give guidance to the Christian people today.
We beg you to grant the favour we are asking you
through his intercession
so that his holiness may be recognized by all
and the Church may proclaim him a Saint.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
