thirst for your presence.
Open the hearts of many, raise up
faithful servants of the Gospel
who will spend themselves for your
people and their needs.

who will serve you as religious.
By their way of life, may they provide
a convincing sign
of your Kingdom for the Church and the
Bless those who are serving now

example and faith.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
