O Christ, the Son of God,
you graciously chose Saint Paul to be your apostle,
and enabled him to sow the good seed
of your Word throughout the world.
From his preaching there has sprung up
an abundant harvest for you.
Grant that his teachings may sink deep into our hearts
and bring forth fruit to your glory;
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
you live and reign,
one God, now and forever.
