Lord Jesus Christ,
reward the apostolic zeal of Your Seraphic son,
Blessed Junípero Serra,
who leaving home and fatherland,
labored for the salvation of souls in Spain,
Mexico and California.
By Your Most Holy Name
may he be raised to the full honors of the altar.
Through the intercession of Blessed Serra,
look with favor on our special prayers
which have no earthly answer
This we pray through Christ our Lord.
