Father Francis Jordan


* 16.06.1848   -   † 08.09.1918


God our Father, you called Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan to be your apostle, to make you known and loved by all people everywhere, using all the ways and means your love inspires.


You filled him with universal apostolic zeal, with the goodness and the kindness of the Divine Saviour, with a deep trust in God's loving providence, with a profound spirit of prayer, with a sincere devotion to Mary, Mother of the Saviour, and with the courage to follow you, even into the mystery of the Cross.


Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we ask you .....,
hoping that he will soon be numbered among your saints. 


We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

After his death Father Jordan was buried in the parish church in TafersSwitzerland. In 1956 his earthly remains were exhumed and transferred to the Salvatorian Motherhouse in Rome, where he spent a significant part of his life. The process for his beatification was introduced in 1942, and in 2011 the Decree on the Heroicity of Virtues was published.
