Icon of the Priesthood (Monsignor Anthony La Femina

Most gracious Heavenly Father,
We thank you for our faithful priests and bishops, whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.
May our spiritual fathers be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul, all the Apostles and their saintly successors. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world. May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.
Assist all spiritual fathers, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth. May they generously impart this knowledge to those who rely on them.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

"Prayer for Priests"

My God and Father in heaven, that night in the Garden, on the
Mount of Olives, Your Son told Peter: " Do you think that I
cannot appeal to my Father, who will promptly send more than
twelve legions of angels to my defense?". ( Matt. 26:53 ).

Father, we ask You now: send twelve legions of angels with
chalices of strength out into the Gethsemene of the Holy Church
to defend and assist our priests, who, strengthened by the
power and presence of these angels, may faithfully fulfill their
priestly missions. Amen.

"Prayer for Vocations"

O God, who have chosen the apostles to make disciples
of all nations and who by Baptism and Confirmation have
called us to build up Your Holy Church, we earnestly implore
You to choose from among us, Your children, many priests,
deacons and religious brothers and sisters who will love You
with their whole heart and will gladly spend their entire lives
to make You known and loved by all. Amen.

May God the Father Bless us,
May God the Son heal us,
May God the Holy Spirit enlighten us.
Give us eyes to see with, ears to hear with
and hands to do the work of God.
Give us feet to walk with and a mouth to
preach His words of love and salvation.
May the angel of peace watch over us, and
lead us at last by our Lords gifts to His
Eternal Kingdom.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.**
