That our consecration through chastity may be a prophetic sign of the resurrected life after death when people "neither marry nor are given in marriage" (Mt 22:30), but when all will be directly united with Christ and with one another in complete love and peace. (Art. 17)
That we may be faithful to our Constitutions as a special revelation of God's purpose for us.
For our country, for justice and peace.
Alas! My entire life will not suffice to do penance for my grievous sins, for my carelessness in the fulfilment of most sacred responsibilities... (Paris, 1/8/1836)
