Merciful God, you sent Jesus, your Son, to proclaim the Good News of Salvation to all people.  By his Cross and Resurrection, we receive new life in the Holy Spirit.  Send your Spirit upon our Church, and inspire many young people to serve your people as priests, deacons, religious, and ministers of your Word.  Help all who are baptized to hear your call, and give us the grace to bear witness to Christ to the ends of the earth.  We make this prayer in the name of Jesus Our Lord.  Amen!
