O God, you inserted the power of the Gospel into the world like leaven
and called many of us to follow your Son as Salesian Cooperators,
with each of us living out that call according to our personal circumstances in life.
Grant that we might be on fire with St John Bosco’s ardent spirit,
so that with Mary, Help of Christians as our guide and inspiration
we may seek to help those in need, especially our young people,
and help build a better world.
