Prayer God, our Father, on leaving this world, your son Jesus entrusted to his disciples the mission of proclaiming his message to all nations. A hundred and fifty years ago, inspired by your Holy Spirit, and led by a deep love for Africa, Cardinal Lavigerie founded our two missionary institutes for which we give you thanks. Under the protection of Mary Immaculate, Our Lady of Africa, we have served you in love and joy. Forgive us our errors in the mission. Let your blessing protect all the peoples of Africa who proclaim your glory to the whole world. Renew us by the power of your Spirit, so that we may continue with zeal and passion the work that our Founder and our missionary ancestors have initiated. Amen
