Thou wast also constituted Prince of the Apostles, with primacy over the whole Church, of which thou wast made the Rock and Foundation.
Obtain for us, we pray, a lively faith and an ardent zeal so that all of us will labor for the return of our separated brethren.
May the desire of our divine Redeemer, that there might be but “one Fold and one Shepherd,” be for us, as it was for thee, the inspiration to work and pray for the return of all those who are still outside the Fold.
Strengthened by divine Grace, may they be led back speedily to the bosom of our common Mother, the Catholic Church.
V. O ye holy Apostles Peter and Paul, pray for us.
R. That we may be worthy of the promises of Christ.
