Our Mother of Perpetual Help 

O, VIRGIN MARY,  Mother of Perpetual Help,

you were greatly honored by our Founder, Father Gregory, who had magnified in you

the providence and mercy of the Father.

Through his intercession, obtain for us the gift of new and holy vocations,

for the continuity of our charism in the Church.

Give us the grace to inspire many people, with the witness of our lives, to follow Your Son Jesus,

so that by consecrating themselves to Him, they will give themselves with joy

to total service of the Gospel. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
