Q&A

Is it proper to ask publicly for the prayers of a deceased person who is not beatified?

Question:

At a local Catholic school in Baltimore, Maryland, the prayer always ends with &quot;James Cardinal Gibbons, pray for us.&quot; Is it proper to invoke a person in public prayer if they have not even been proposed for beatification? And have any steps been taken for his <br /> beatification? <br />
