O God my Lord, please be the bond of their hearts; bring to flower the effects of so many holy affections You cause them to form, and give growth to the fruits of their labors for the salvation of souls. Water with Your eternal blessings this establishment, like a new tree planted by your hand. Strengthen these poor Missionaries in their fatigue. Lastly, my God, be yourself their reward, and through their prayers spread over me your immense mercy (III:241).
