Most loving Jesus and our Lord, who have redeemed the world at the price of your Most Precious Blood, look mercifully on poor mankind, which in a greater part, lies in the darkness of error and in the shadow of death. Shine on it the fullness of the light of truth. Multiply, Lord, the apostles of your Gospel. Make them fervent and fruitful. Bless with your grace their zeal and their pains so that through them all unbelievers may come to know you and turn to you, their Creator and Redeemer. Call back again into your sheepfold those who have strayed, and back into the womb of your only and true Church, the rebellious. O Most lovable Savior, hasten the long-awaited advent of your kingdom on earth. Attract all men to your sweetest Heart so that all may participate in the incomparable benefits of Redemption. Amen.
~ Pope Pius XII
