A Prayer for Priests – St. Thérèse of Lisieux

O Jesus, Eternal Priest,

c-53.jpg

keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart,

where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands,

which daily touch Thy Sacred Body.

Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood.

Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.

Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit,

and may the souls to whom they minister
be their joy and consolation here…

and their everlasting crown hereafter.

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us: obtain for us numerous and holy priests. Amen.
