Prayer for Missionaries

From the very beginning of his priestly life, St. Louis Marie de Montfort dreamed of a 'small group of priests' who would devote themselves to the proclamation of missions to the poor under the banner of the Blessed Virgin. As time passed, his efforts for the few recruits who would work with him multiplied. This prayer, known in French as the 'Priere Embrasee' (a tempestuous prayer), composed by him, probably towards the end of his life, was the heart's cry to God to fulfill his dream. This described the kind of “apostle” he was seeking, whom he predicted would be indispensable in his so-called True Consecration. (no. 35, 45-58), “the time of the end.”
