Who granted to Francisco Esteban
and his martyred companions
the grace of giving their lives for Christ,
through a bloody oblation,
help us in our weakness,
so that through their intercession
and following their example,
we too might remain firm in our faith
and might be able to give our lives for others
through the "martyrdom of charity,"
according to the teaching
of St. Eugene de Mazenod;
and in this way,
we might be able to give witness to the world
about who Jesus Christ is.
We ask this through the intercession
of our Mother, Mary Immaculate,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
