Heavenly Father, through your Holy Spirit you inspired Joseph De Piro
to gather around him missionaries full of enthusiasm to preach
the Good News of your Son among people who lacked messengers of the Gospel.
As we thank you for your faithfulness with our Society throughout the years,
we ask you to continue filling us, Paulist Missionaries,
with your Spirit so that in communion,
we continue to carry on the mission entrusted to us.
Inspire courageous young men to offer their life for this ministry,
so that the Gospel of your Son may reach the ends of the world.
Reward all relatives, benefactors and friends
who share in this ministry of evangelisation
with your abundant blessings.
We make our prayer through the
intercession of Mary Assumed into heaven and the Apostle Paul,
through Christ Our Lord whose Gospel we preach. Amen.
