O Most Holy Virgin,
we come to you to implore a great grace
on behalf of all the peoples of the earth.
We ask of you labourers of the Gospel.
You, O Mother, are the Queen of the Apostles,
you have obtained the grace of their ministry.
Through your intercession,
every vocation has come.
Obtain for your Church and the whole world today, numerous and chosen priests,
apostolic and holy men,
souls fervant with zeal and charity.
Remember the command of your Son Jesus when he said:
“Pray the harvest master that he may send workers to the harvest.”
Hear us, O Mother, for the greatest comfort of the most holy Heart of Jesus.
Saint Annibale Maria Di Francia
