O Holy Spirit,
you formed the generous and pure soul of Mary,
open the same path to many young men and women
fascinated with ideals.
Show them the beauty of a life consecrated to the Lord,
the marvelous strength and the fruitfulness of total offering.
Let the call resound in the most profound depths of their waiting hearts.
Make them welcome this urgent call as a marvelous gift.
Reveal to them the admirable and meek face of Jesus inviting them.
Show them the immense need for souls rich in charity.
For the joy and the good of the Church,
send new apostles into our age.
