Day 9: Strengthen The Apostolates That Communicate The Gospel

READ

Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.

John 14:12–14


ASK

Lord Jesus, give the graces needed to strengthen and increase those apostolates that transmit the Gospel message. Expand their reach, invigorate their zeal, and grant new ardor to their efforts. Give the graces needed to sustain them and multiply them according to Your Holy Will. Raise up O Lord, souls to help these apostolates consecrated to You. Grant those organizations who work for the spread of the gospel the resources necessary to do great things, not for their own sake, but only to magnify Your Name. Entrust your Holy Mother to these apostolates, O Lord, that she may guide them and present them to You. 


PRAY

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, As it was in the beginning, and now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
