and trust in Your divine mercy,
and the courage to accept
the crosses and sufferings

as we climb the mountain of holiness,
carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory.
May we receive You
with great faith and love in Holy Communion,

for your greater glory.
O Jesus, most adorable Heart
and eternal fountain of Divine Love,
may our prayer find favor before
the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father.

Give me the strength to fight
and to obtain the prize due to strong souls.
