That our life of union with Christ may express itself through our union with our brothers in community, and overflow into our apostolic life which strives to bring to completion the establishment of Christ's kingdom. (Art. 5)
For our deceased brothers and benefactors, for all of the faithful departed, and for him who will die first among us.
For all of the suffering members of Christ's Church throughout the world, that their sufferings may bring them closer to the Lord.
All powerful God help me! Throughout the rest of my life give me the strength to become worthy of your goodness! (Paris, 12/28/1834)
