God, Father of goodness, You who call each one of us by name,

Help us to be faithful to the vocation received.

We want to be salt and light of the world, always serving among the poor with an affective and effective love.

We need your son Jesus Christ to preach Your Word in the places we have been sent.

We want to be witnesses of the Kingdom, living out the Beatitudes.

Send us the Holy Spirit so that, as Church, we will live in communion and unity with others.

We, lay missionaries, want to welcome the gift of community and renew ourselves in the light of Your Gospel.

May Mary, Queen of the missions, accompany and watch over the continuity of our self-giving in the task entrusted by Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
