O Triune God, the cries of the poor are so many,
but your mercy is greater.
There are so many situations of misery and violence,
that destroy the beauty of your sons and daughters,
but your love and justice are present
among peoples of all cultures,
giving strength to overcome selfishness,
exploitation and greed.

It was your love, Lord, that inspired blessed Mother Josepha
to embrace the missionary ideal, and place herself at the service of your Kingdom,
beginning the Congregation of the Missionaries, Servants of the Holy Spirit.

Grant that through her intercession
we may be prophetic signs of your love, living justice,
and being in solidarity with the poor and unevangelized.
This we ask, O Father, through Jesus Christ your Son,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
