grant that our priests
be strengthened and healed by the
power of the Eucharist they celebrate.
May the Word they proclaim give them
courage and wisdom.
We pray that all those whom they
seek to serve may see in them
the love and care of Jesus,
our Eternal High Priest, who is Lord
for ever and ever. Amen
Mary, Mother of the Church,
Look tenderly upon your sons, our priests.
Joseph, patron of the Universal Church,
pray for us all.
