"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.

"St. Dominics Blessing"

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.
