Long Version

Lord Jesus, moved by the urgent need of priests, religious and apostles, and following Thy recommendation to pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to work for the salvation of souls, we implore Thee, through the intercession of Thy Most Holy Mother Mary, Virgin Immaculate and Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and also through the intercession of Dominic the Holy Patriarch, to increase the number of Friars Preachers.  

Pour forth into families, colleges and seminaries the precious grace of the apostolic vocation, and enkindle in young hearts the sacred fire of the love of God and of souls. Mayest Thou, Thyself, deign to prepare those whom Thou dost call, and incline them to desire and ask for that grace. Preserve them from sin and the many dangers of their age. Enlighten their minds, purify their hearts, strengthen their wills, aid them to cultivate constantly and diligently the divine seed planted in their souls, and guide them on the upward path of toil and purity that leads to the summit of truth. And as thou, O Mary, Mother of Mercy, didst long ago present thy servant Dominic to Jesus so now offer thy sons to Him each day, and make them worthy of their sublime mission.

Obtain for Thy Order faithful followers of its religious traditions, numerous apostles after the heart of their Blessed Father Dominic, holy and zealous for the salvation of souls. Amen.
