St. John Bosco, Friend of the young,
Teacher in the ways of God,
Your dedication to empowering the needy inspires us still.
Help me to work for a better world,
where the young are given the chance to flourish,
where the poor’s dream for justice can come true,
and where God’s compassion is shown to be real.
Intercede for me as I bring my needs to you and to
our heavenly Mother.
Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us! 
Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever!
