Let us pray through the intercession of Saint John Bosco:
R. Watch over your people and guide them!
For the young and those who form and educate them:
– be their light, O Lord. (R.)
For troubled youth and those physically, morally, or spiritually endangered by their environment:
– be their life, O Lord. (R.)
For children and young people who have been abused or abandoned:
– be their help, O Lord. (R.)
For all Christian teachers and all who administer programmes of Christian formation:
– be their foundation, O Lord.
May the Lord our God bless us in all the work that our hands undertake. (cf. Dt 14:19)
