LORD JESUS CHRIST, SON OF THE FATHER,
SEND NOW YOUR SPIRIT OVER THE EARTH.
LET THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF ALL NATIONS,

MAY THE LADY OF ALL NATIONS, THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY,
BE OUR ADVOCATE.

Let us pray:
Eternal God, you're the shepherd protecting your flock
and leading through the ages.
Give the church a Pope whose holy life pleases you
and whose pastoral care
shows the way to your people.
(Collect from the votive Mass "Pro eligendo Papa", "For the Pope to be elected" from the Roman Missal.)
Oh, Father, You sent Your Eternal Son to save the world and chose men and women, through Him, with Him and in Him, to proclaim the Good News to all nations. Grant us the graces necessary so that joy may shine in the faces of all young people, the joy of being, by the power of the Holy Spirit, the evangelists the Church needs in the Third Millennium.
Oh Christ, Redeemer of humanity, the image of Your open arms on the top of Corcovado welcomes all people. In Your paschal offering, You brought us by the Holy Spirit to an encounter of sonship with the Father. Young people, who are fed by Eucharist, hear You in Your Word and meet You as their brother, need your infinite mercy to run the paths of the world missionary-disciples of the New Evangelization.
Oh Holy Spirit, Love of the Father and the Son, with the splendor of Your Truth and the fire of Your Love, send Your Light to all young people so that, driven by their experience of World Youth Day, they may bring to the four corners of the world faith, hope and charity, becoming great builders of a culture of life and peace and catalysts of a new world.
