To Christ

Jesus, Son of God, in whom abides the fullness of the divinity, You call all the baptized “to go out to sea”, by following the path of holiness.

Arouse in the hearts of young people the desire to be witnesses to the power of your love in today’s world. Fill them with your Spirit of strength and prudence, so that they will be able to discover the full truth about themselves and their own vocation.

Our Savior, sent by the Father to reveal his merciful love, give your Church the gift of young people ready to move out to sea, to be among their brothers a manifestation of your presence that renews and saves.

Holy Virgin, Mother of the Redeemer, guide assured in the way to God and to the neighbor, You who have kept his words in the intimacy of your heart, support with your maternal intercession the families and ecclesial communities, so that they may help adolescents and young people to respond generously to the call of the Lord.
