That our devotion to the Blessed Virgin may be firmly rooted in the revealed Word and based on solid dogmatic foundations.
That our Spanish apostolates may be blessed through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
For our Congregation, our Superiors and vocations to our Congregation.
In thanksgiving to our benefactors for their generosity to us.
Grant me sorrow -- sorrow enough for a lifetime -- humility, affliction in body and spirit, a love for you that is without limit! (La Trappe, 11/20/1837)
