O glorious patriarch who merited to be called just by the Holy Spirit, I urgently recommend to you the soul of (State the name[s] here), which Jesus redeemed at the price of His Precious Blood. You know how deplorable is the state and how unhappy the life of those who have banished this loving Saviour from their hearts, and how greatly they are exposed to the danger of losing Him eternally. Permit not, I beseech you, that a soul so dear to me should continue any longer in its evil ways. Preserve it from the danger that threatens it. Touch the heart of this prodigal child, and conduct them back to the bosom of the fondest of fathers. Abandon them not, I implore you, until you have opened to him the gates of the heavenly city, where they will praise and bless you throughout eternity for the happiness which he will owe to your powerful intercession.
