O God,

Who in your providence continually send workers into your harvest,

you inspired Marcellin Champagnat, Jean-Claude Colin, Étienne Déclas, Étienne Terraillon and their companions to pledge themselves to the founding a new congregation with the spirit and name of Mary.

May we, their heirs, men and women of the Marist family, be moved by their example.

Give to us the grace

to understand more clearly our call to carry on their intentions in our present world;

to embrace anew the work of Mary given to us today for the building up of your Church for tomorrow in simplicity, humility and compassionate solidarity;

and to step out into mission, open to the promptings of the Spirit, responsive to the needs of God’s people, ready to spend ourselves and all we have, trusting in the help of Mary our good mother and our first and perpetual superior.

Confident that we can do all things in him who gives us strength, we make our prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
