Jesus tu Hijo, cambio el agua en vino, porque tu se lo pediste. Te imploramos, Madre Misericordiosa, que obtengas para nosotros todas las gracias que necesitamos de tu Hijo. Intercede ante El para que bendiga a las Americas con muchas vocaciones al sacerdocio, a la vida religiosa, al matrimonio cristiano y a la vida laical, Madre de Dios, ruega por nostros ahora y siempre. Amen
