"Renew Your wonders in our time, as though by a new Pentecost (Renova aetate hac nostra per novum veluti Pentecostem mirabilia tua) and grant that the holy Church, preserving unanimous and continuous prayer, together with Mary, the mother of Jesus, and also under the guidance of St. Peter, may increase the reign of the Divine Savior, the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace. Amen."
