John XXIII Theological Institute


The American Catholic Church in the United States



"Divine Spirit, renew your wonders in this our age as in a new Pentecost, and grant that your Church, praying perseveringly and insistently with one heart and mind together with Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and guided by blessed Peter,

may increase the reign of the Divine Savior, the reign of truth and justice,

the reign of love and peace. Amen."

St. John XXIII

This prayer of Pope John XXIII used in convoking the Second Vatican Council gives a prophetic vision of the new Pentecost in the Church, expressing it in capsule form. It serves as a vision for what the Church could be in its mission to help bring forward Godís Reign.
