We pray that by the virtue of baptism, the laity, especially women, may participate more in areas of
responsibility in the Church.

You entrusted your Church to announce your mission through words and deeds:
the Love of the Father for all His sons and daughters.
Grant all your disciples perserverance and courage to announce the beauty of the Church as missionaries. Through the intercession of St. Mary Magdalene,
Apostle of the Apostles,
we ask that all women,
especially those who have responsibilities in the Church,
to live in service with joy and enthusiasm,
walking with all the People of God.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
who is giving himself for me and who comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit make me Your friend and apostle,
available for your mission of compassion.
I place in Your hands my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings, everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this Worldwide Prayer Network.
With Mary, I offer you my day for the mission of the Church
and for the prayer intentions of the Pope and my Bishop for this month.

- In a moment of personal prayer, give thanks for the gift of Baptism. This makes each Christian a missionary disciple. Ask for the grace to be sent on your mission in your everyday life.
- As a family, small group, or community, pray for all the laity who live the mission of proclaiming Jesus at work, in society, and Church–that they can live it with enthusiasm and determination.
- Recognize and give thanks to the women in your own parish and community. Women carry out leadership positions in many ways in the Church.
