Heavenly Father, bless Your Church with an abundance of holy and zea
priests, deacons, brothers and sisters. Give those You have called to the married
state, and those You have chosen to live as single persons in the world, the special
graces that their lives require. Form us all in the likeness of Your Son, so that in
Him, with Him and through Him, we may love you more deeply and serve you
more faithfully always and everywhere. With Mary we ask this through Christ our
Lord. Amen.
