    Christ Icon

 

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.
Amen.
           Saint John Vianney, pray for us.
