"May the Holy Year be for all men the year of purification and sanctification of interior life and the re-creation; the year of the great return and of the great departure, bestow O Lord on those who are suffering persecution for their faiths, their spirit of fortitude, to unite them inseparably with Christ and his Church. Rouse in the hearts of those who call thee Father, the hunger and the thirst for social justice in the cause of charity, in deeds and in truth. Grant O Lord, peace in our days, peace to souls, peace to families, peace to our country, peace among the nations".
