You entrusted your Church with the mission to proclaim the Good News to all the nations.
You sent the Holy Spirit
to strengthen those who would bear the message of salvation.
In this year may the same Holy Spirit strengthen our faith
and inspire us with the words and deeds that,
by our efforts,
the men and women of our time will hear of You,
will believe in You and
will come to the beauty of knowing You.
Who live and reign with God the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever
