Our Lord and God,
obtain for us the heart of an apostle,
a heart as big as the world;
give us your ardent zeal for the glory of God.
May our life be consumed after your example,
in the midst of work and of fatigue,
though our suffering and trails of all kinds.
Help us to respond with joy and generosity to all;
the call to God, to make him known and loved.
Obtain for us your burning love for Jesus Christ
who has made you another Christ.
May the Lord live in us as he lived in you,
for the glory of the Trinity and the salvation of the world.
