Prayer of the dayJesus who enriches our community which has worshipped Him, the Apostles worked tirelessly to establish Churches in various parts of the world. May Your Spirit, which empowered them, also continue to work in all the missionaries of today, that Your Churches may expand and bring Your light and life to all.

Jesus the Surety of our Resurrection, You wished to be born of the Virgin Mary to save us and to bring us back to Yourself. When Your saving plan was accomplished, You returned to Your Father, and then drew Your Mother, full of grace, to Yourself and seated her at Your right hand. Through her prayers, O Lord, have mercy on us. Through her intercession, liberate us and all our countrymen, that one day we may obtain her state and live with You.
