Almighty and merciful God, who made the Blessed John Marie admirable in his pastoral zeal and in his constant love of penance, grant us the grace, we implore You, to win for Christ, by his example and intercession, the souls of our brothers, and to attain with them everlasting glory. Oh, Blessed John Marie, incomparable laborer in the field confided to you, obtain for the Church the realization of Jesus’ desire. The harvest is abundant, but the laborers are few.
