God our Father, we give you thanks for calling us to embrace the gift of life and share it.
As once, through Jesus the Christ, you chose the first disciples to proclaim the Good News, and poured out your Spirit upon the Church,
renew us now in our vocation and our mission of reconciliation;
let the same call echo in the heart of many young persons, that they may generously respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters, after the example of Mary, the Beautiful Lady of La Salette;
inspire in men and women of our time the desire to be “light” and “salt” in the Church and the world. Amen.
