Reverse text (Colin Year prayer):    God our Father, in the joy of the Spirit we give you thanks for Jean-Claude Colin, our founder. By a gracious choice we have been called to share in that life and mission he strove to implant in the Church.
Desiring to live in fidelity to the spirit of Mary and the charism that he left us, we pray for the renewal
of ‘this little Society’ and the conversion of heart that it requires.
We pray also for Fr Colin’s beatification if that be your will. 
This we ask through Christ our Lord and the intercession of Mary, our first and perpetual superior.   Amen.
