ALMIGHTY GOD, Who willest the eternal
salvation of all men, for whom Jesus Christ, Thy
divine son has died upon the cross deing to look
down in mercy upon inhabitants of this Archdiocese
so many of whom do not yet know Thee. Deign to raise
up in this new land many priests who may lead their
fellows to the knowledge and love of thee, the only
true God, and of Jesus Christ, whom Thou has sent.
Deign to infuse into the hearts of our young men
a great desire to leave all things for Thy sake
and to consecrate their lives to the services of
Thy altar. Give them all the virtues they need to
remain faithful to their calling and to become good
and holy priests.
Deign, O Eternal Father to infuse great faith and
charity into the hearts of Christian parents that
they may willingly and gladly offer their sons to
Thy service. We beg Thee to hear our ardent prayer
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
