Jesus, Son of God,
in whom the fullness of the Divinity dwells,

You call all the baptized to “put out into the deep”,
taking the path that leads to holiness.

Waken in the hearts of young people the desire
to be witnesses in the world of today
to the power of your love.

Fill them with your Spirit of fortitude and prudence,
so that they may 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 to your Church the gift of young people
who are ready to put out into the deep,
to be the sign among their brothers and sisters of

Your presence which renews and saves.
Holy Virgin, Mother of the Redeemer,
sure guide on the way towards God,

You who pondered his word in the depth of your heart,
sustain with your motherly intercession
our families and our ecclesial communities,
so that they may help adolescents and young people
to answer generously the call of the Lord.
