The International Querbes Commission has released a new prayer card for the Querbesian Year honoring the founder of the Viatorian Community, Fr. Louis Querbes, 1793-1859. The front of the card has a beautiful neutral toned image of Querbes and the reverse side includes a prayer for his beatification, available in both English and Spanish.

The prayer has been approved for the Querbesian Year, for private use, by the Archbishop of Lyons, Cardinal Phillipe Barbarin, April 27, 2005.

The Querbesian Year, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of Querbes death, started September 1, 2009 and continues through August 31, 2010. Please join the Viatorian Community and pray for the beatification of our founder, Fr. Louis Querbes!
