Pray for Priests

 

PRAY FOR PRIESTS

 O Jesus,
I pray for your faithful and fervent priests:
For Your unfaithful and tepid priests:
For Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields.
For Your tempted priests:
For Your lonely and desolate priests:
For Your young priests:
For Your dying priests:
For the souls of Your priests in Purgatory.
But above all, I recommend to You

 the priests dearest to me:
The priest who baptized me;
The priests who absolved me from my sins:
The priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in

Holy Communion:
The priests who taught and instructed me:
All the priests to whom I am indebted

in any other way
O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart.
And Bless them abundantly in time

and in Eternity.    Amen.

 

 St. Thérèse of Lisieux
