We entrust all of the new Territorial Directors and their councilors to Our Lady, with this prayer from The Service of Authority and Obedience:

O sweet and holy Virgin Mary, with your believing and perplexed obedience, at the announcement of the angel you gave us Christ. At Cana with your attentive Heart you showed us how to act responsibly. You did not wait passively for the action of your Son but you anticipated it, making him aware of the need and with discreet authority taking the initiative to send the servants to him.

At the foot of the cross, obedience made you the Mother of the Church and of believers while in the upper room every disciple recognized in you the gentle authority of love and service.

Help us to understand that every true authority in the Church and in consecrated life has its foundation in being docile to the will of God and help each one of us become in fact, authority for others with our own life lived in obedience to God.

O merciful and compassionate Mother, ‘You who did the will of the Father, ever ready in obedience,´ make our lives attentive to the Word, faithful in the following of Jesus, the Lord and Servant, in the light and with the strength of the Holy Spirit, joyful in fraternal communion, generous in mission, prompt in our service to the poor, looking forward to the day in which obedience in faith will flow into the feast of Love without end.
