That our vow of obedience may render our apostolic life more fruitful by bringing about a unity of purpose and action. (Art.42)
For the members of our local communities as they strive to bring the care, compassion and forgiveness of Christ to one another.
For parents, relatives, friends and benefactors, and for all those who have recommended themselves to our prayers.
My dearest brothers, with great fervour, with all our soul let us turn our hearts and minds to God and offer him all the strength and vigour of our lives! (Paris, 11/5/1837)
