O Hope of Israel, its savior in time of trouble,
look down with kindness from Heaven.
Take a close look at your vineyard,
and provide whatever is necessary for it.
Swell its streams, increase its fruit,
and bring to maturity
the vineyard which your right hand has planted.
Indeed, the harvest is great
but the laborers are few.
We ask you, therefore, Lord of the Harvest:
send laborers into your harvest.
Multiply your people and increase their joy
so that the walls of Jerusalem may be built up.
This is your house, O Lord God,
this is your house.
Let there not be in it, I beg you,
even one stone which your most holy hand
has not placed there.
Preserve in your name those whom you have called
and make them truly holy. Amen.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
St. Vincent De Paul, pray for us.
