YEAR OF PRIESTS- prayers I use to pray for all my priestly freinds – prayer 1

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 priest who absolved me from my sins;

the priest 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.

Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart,

and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.


By Therese of Lisieux
