In July, let’s unite in prayer with MAGIS-Portugal

Prior to each World Youth Day gathering, the Society of Jesus provides young individuals aged 18 to 35, who are part of the “Ignatian family,” a 10-day opportunity to engage in community activities, prayer, and gain knowledge about Ignatian spirituality. This year, over 2,000 young individuals will come together in Portugal from July 22 to 31.

Throughout this month, let’s support the participants of MAGIS 2023 by reciting the official prayer of the event every day.

Most Holy Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we believe that you are with us and walk with us.

We are young people who come from all over the world
to celebrate together our belonging to the Church
founded by Jesus through his Apostles:
people like us,
fragile and happy,
committed to the creation of a hope-filled future.

Father, we thank you for the good and beautiful creation
that you invite us to co-create with you.
Spirit, we celebrate your presence
that dwells in each of our hearts and relationships.

Jesus, our brother and friend
may Your dream
of announcing the Good News of the Father
come true with our help
from what we are, what we have
and we present to You.

United as brothers and sisters
we climb together to “mount Magis”
where You reveal Yourself and transfigure everything through love.

Mary, Mother of World Youth Day
strengthen in us the desire to set out with you in haste
towards the poorest and the victims of injustice
of our common home under construction.

St. Ignatius, teach us to focus on the consoling work of Jesus
and to live in the world doing everything for the greater glory of God.

All the saints and blessed of the Society, help us to always seek the will of God
and to kindle the world with the fire that burned in your hearts.

Founder Saints of the Ignatian Family,
enlighten us so that our gaze may always be centered on Jesus
and that we may be faithful to the end in every mission entrusted to us.
Intercede for humanity and its reconciliation in Christ.
Intercede for us as creators of a hope-filled future.
