Prayer for Priests

Dear Lord,
     we pray that the Blessed Mother
     wrap her mantle around your priests
     and through her intercession
     strengthen them for their ministry.
We pray that Mary will guide your priests
     to follow her own words,
     "Do whatever He tells you" (Jn 2:5).
May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph,
     Mary's most chaste spouse.
May the Blessed Mother's own pierced heart
     inspire them to embrace
     all who suffer at the foot of the cross.
May your priests be holy,
     filled with the fire of your love
     seeking nothing but your greater glory
     and the salvation of souls.

Saint John Vianney, pray for us.
