O Father, through our participation in the Chapter,
you move us to renew in ourselves the apostolic courage of Don Bosco
that is capable of embracing the whole world:
make us docile to the breath of the Spirit
so that we may open ourselves,
together with the young, to the grace of a new Pentecost.
O Father, through the Chapter you call us
to a profound missionary conversion
in our communities and in our formation:
grant us the grace of unity and an apostolic interior life
so as to be able to discern the signs of your presence
and respond promptly and generously to your will.
O Father, through the Salesian Family
you have raised up a vast movement
for the salvation of the young:
enable us to share the same spirit
with laypeople within the variety of vocations
and in apostolic and educative collaboration
O Father, through the action of the Spirit
you dwell and work in the hearts of the young
to lead them to beauty, goodness and truth:
grant that following in the footsteps of our Father, Don Bosco,
we may welcome the dreams of the young people of our time
and accompany them with wisdom and enthusiasm.
O Father, in Mary you gave Don Bosco
the inspirer and teacher of our spirituality
and mission among the young:
help us to cultivate an inner attitude
of silence, listening, prayer, fraternal sharing and mutual respect
in seeking the good we must do.
O Father, in the specificity and complementarity of vocations,
you manifest the equal dignity of Christians
and the universal call to holiness:
grant that the Salesian Family, in fidelity
to the charism bestowed on Don Bosco, may carry out
its mission of evangelization and education of young people and the poor.
