Please Pray 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.
Amen.
Saint John Vianney, pray for us.
