Saint Jose Maria Escriva
O God our Father, you chose St. Josemaría to proclaim the universal call to sanctity
and apostolate in the Church.
By his example and prayers, grant
that in faithfully carrying out our daily work
in the Spirit of Christ, we may be formed in the likeness of your Son,
and together with the most Blessed Virgin Mary,
serve the work of redemption with an ardent love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ
your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
