“Lord Jesus, who called the ones you wanted to call, call many of us to work for youand with you.
“You, who enlightened with your words those whom you called, enlighten us with faith in you.
“You, who supported them in their difficulties, help us to conquer the difficulties we have as young people today.
“And if you call one of us to be consecrated completely to you, may your love give warmth to this vocation from its very beginning and make it grow and persevere to the end. Amen.”
6 January, of 1979
