Lord Jesus Christ you have given your Church the mission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations.
May our efforts to fulfill this mission be guided by the Holy Spirit so that we might be leaven of new life, slat of the earth and a light to the world – worthy missionaries and faithful to You.
Make us valiant witnesses of the Faith of the Church, and inspire us to speak the truth in love.
Help us communicate to others the joy that we have received.
Permit us to be united, but not closed; humble, but not fearful; simple, but not naïve; thoughtful, but not overbearing; contemporary, but not superficial; respectful of others, but boldly Your disciples.
May we bear into the world the hope of God, which is Christ the Lord, who rose from the dead and lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
