Prayer for Priests
Mother of Jesus Christ,
you were with Him at the beginning of His life and of His mission,
you sought the Master among the crowd,
you stood beside Him when he was lifted up from the earth
consumed as the one eternal sacrifice,
and you had John close by you, your son;
accept from the beginning those who have been called,
protect their growth, accompany your sons in their life and in their ministry,
O Mother of Priests. Amen.
– Prayer by St John Paul II in Pastores Dabo Vobis
Let us remember in our prayers all our priests who will be in their Annual Clergy Retreat this week! May the Lord renew them and strengthen in their vocation, and keep them close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus!
