Pray for Priests

A different priest and seminarian is assigned to each day of the month

   

Why Should We Pray for Priests and Religious?

 

       The Church’s need for priests is growing.  As priests die and retire, not enough men are being ordained to replace them.  Meanwhile, the Catholic population is growing.  This leads to painful parish closings, mergers, and over-worked priests.  Likewise, the number of religious sisters has plummeted by nearly 70% in the past 50 years, which means fewer sisters in schools, hospitals, and other critical Catholic missions.

               If you feel called to make a commitment to praying for priestly and religious vocations, visit the Invisible Monastery!

O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, live in our priests, seminarians and deacons, especially ____ y ____.  Act in them.  Speak in and through them.  Teach, lead and guide them always.  Let them live in You and persevere in intimate union always.  O Mary, Mother of Jesus and mother of priests, intercede for them, especially as Lent begins.  Amen

St. John Vianney

Prayers

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for Your lonely and desolate priests; for Your young priests; for Your dying priests; for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.

But above all, I recommend to You the priests dearest to me; the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way [especially ...]. O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.

St. John Vianney, pray for us; obtain for us many and holy priests.

Our Lady of the Precious Blood,
watch over the past, present, and future living chalices of the Blood of Jesus, especially Bishops Doherty and Higi, Father ___, and deacon/seminarian __. Amen
