you gave your life on the Cross
so that we could share in God’s own life
and know his love for us,

May the love that flows from the Cross
transform our hearts,
so that we can bring your love and compassion
to those whose lives we touch,
especially those who are suffering.

Give the light of your Holy Spirit
to those young people who have received
the grace of a Passionist vocation.
Inspire them to give their lives
as Passionist priests, brothers or sisters,
keeping the Memory of your Passion alive
in their own hearts and in the hearts of others.

May Mary, who stood by the Cross, be their example,
and may Saint Paul of the Cross be their guide. Amen.
