The Pact

Secret of Success


Jesus Master, accept the pact that we present to you
through the hands of Mary, Queen of the Apostles,
and of our Father, St. Paul.

We must correspond to your sublime will,
arrive at the degree of perfection and heavenly glory
to which you have destined us,
and perform the apostolate of social communication
in a holy manner.

But we see that we are very weak, ignorant, incapable
and inadequate in every way:
in spirit, in knowledge, in the apostolate and in poverty.
You instead are the Way and the Truth and the Life, the Resurrection,
our one and supreme Good.

We trust in you alone who said:
“Whatever you ask the Father in my name, you will receive it.”

For our part, we promise and commit ourselves
to seeking wholeheartedly in all things, in life and in the apostolate,
only and always, your glory and peace to all peoples.
We trust that on your part, you will give us a good spirit
grace, knowledge, and the means for doing good.

According to your immense goodness
and the needs of our special vocation,
multiply the fruits of our spiritual work,
of our study, of our apostolate, and of our poverty.
We do not doubt you, but we fear our inconstancy and weakness.

Therefore, good Master, through the intercession of Mary, our Mother,
extend to us the mercy you used with the Apostle Paul so that,
faithful in imitating our Father here on earth,
we may be his companions in the glory in heaven. Amen.
