A prayer the community recites every Friday, throughout the year, together with the lay faithful who comes to 6:30am Mass in our chapel is the Prayer for Priests…

Whether you’re near or far, do be one with us in supporting vocations to the Priesthood and in continually praying for Priests throughout the world.

PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

O Almighty God, our Father, look upon the face of your Son, and for love of Him who is the eternal High Priest, have pity on your priests.

Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands.

Keep them ever close to you, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

Jesus, our eternal High Priest, 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 young priests; for your dying priests; and for the souls of your priests in purgatory.

But above all, I commend to you priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assist; the priests who give me your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me about you and your Holy Scriptures; the priests who helped and encouraged me to accept you as my Lord and Savior; and all the priests whom you sent to touch my life and those of my loved ones. Amen.
