    All powerful God, my loving Father,
    you created me out of your everlasting
    love and in your mercy you adopted me
    as your child; Lord Jesus Christ,
    you saved me by your precious blood
    and you called me to be your disciple;
    O Holy Spirit, you showered
    an abundance of grace upon me.
    Glory be to you forever!
    O Most Holy Trinity, you accepted
    the life-offering of Blessed Sara
    Salkahazi, virgin and martyr, for her
    sisters; through her intercession grant me
    the grace of ................, and help me to
    join her in crying out from the depth of my
    heart: “O God of Love, enkindle love in
    me! Come, my Christ, and make my heart
    your own that you may love, and love,
    and love within me!” Amen.
