PRAYER FOR THE APOSTOLATE
Virgin of Guadalupe, accompany all those who are promoting your mantle throughout the world and take into your immaculate and merciful hands their prayers of petition for the salvation of souls.  Lead them into the embrace of your beloved Son, Jesus so they may have the strength, courage and a Christ-like heart to do God’s Holy Will.  May their faith grow like a mustard seed.
