Holy Apostle who, will your teachings and with your charity, have taught the entire world, look kindly upon us, your children and disciples.
We expect everything from your prayers to the Divine Master and Mary, Queen of the Apostle. Grant, Doctor of the Gentiles, that we may live by faith, save ourselves by hope, and that charity alone reign in us.

Obtain for us, vessel of election, docile correspondence to divine grace, so that it may not remain unfruitful in us. Grant that we may ever better know you, love you, and imitate you; that we may be living members of the Church, the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ.

Raise up many and holy apostles. May the warm breath of true charity permeate the entire world.
Grant that all may know and glorify God and the Divine Master, Way and Truth and Life.

And, Lord Jesus, you know we have no faith in our own powers.

In your mercy grant that we may be defended against all adversity, through the powerful intercession of St. Paul, our Teacher and Father.
