Christ, Savior of the world!
We humbly beg of Thee to manifest in Thy Church
Whom Thou didst so abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles. Call, we pray Thee,
very many to Thy priesthood
and to the religious life.
And may zeal
for Thy glory
and the salvation
inflame those whom Thou hast chosen;
may they be saints in Thy likeness,
and may Thy Spirit

Obtain for fervent souls the grace
and the courage to follow thy Divine Son
in the path of religious perfection.
Queen of Apostles,
pray for us.
Queen of Virgins,
pray for us.
