O Lord Jesus Christ, Who embraced and blessed the little children when they came to You, and said: "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them. The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these; and their angels ever see the face of my Father," we beg You to look with favor on the innocence of our Diocesan Youth and on the devotion of their parents, and bless them. Let them ever advance in Your grace and goodness, the better to know You, love You, fear You, and serve You, and happily reach their blessed destiny. Strengthen our Diocesan Youth with heavenly grace, so that they may grasp with their minds, treasure in their hearts, and carry out in their deeds all the teachings that lead to salvation. Look with favor upon our Camp Nazareth, built for the education and salvation of our Youth. Command Your angels to guard it and to drive away from it all power of the enemy. For You are the enlightenment of our souls and bodies, O Christ our God, and we give glory to You, together with Your eternal Father and Your all-holy, gracious and life-giving Spirit, now and ever and forever. Amen.
