ord }esus, you have chosen your priests From among

us and sent them out to proclaim your word and to
act in your name. For so great a giFt to your Church,
we give you praise and thanksgiving. ve ask you to Fill
them with the Fire oF your love, that their ministry may
reveal your presence in the Church. Since they are earthen
vessels, we pray that your power shine out through their
weakness. In their aFFlictions let them never be crushed, in
their doubts never despair, in temptation never be
destroyed, in persecution never abandoned. Inspire them
through prayer to live each day the mystery oF your dying
and rising. In times oF weakness send them your Spirit, and
help them to praise your heavenly Father and pray For poor
sinners. By the same Holy Spirit put your words on their
lips and your love in their hearts, to bring good news to the
poor and healing to the brokenhearted. And may the giFt oF
Mary your mother, to the disciple whom you loved, be your
giFt to every priest. Grant that she who Formed you in her
human image may, by her intercession, help to Form them
in your Divine Image by the power oF the Holy Spirit, to
the glory oF God the Father. Amen.
