Prayer for Fr. Keyes


#1

I am having an online conversation with him, and I feel I may need to contact his parish pastor. I do not want to do this, because I do not want to dishonor him. But please pray for this priest, for his enlightment and his ever obedience to our Holy Mother and Teacher the Church.

and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

O Lord, Holy Father, omnipotent and eternal God, I give You thanks and I bless Your holy name. I know I’m a poor miserable sinner but hear a cause that is just, pay heed to my cry, turn your ear to my prayer, no deceit is on my lips. Amen

O Jesus, our great High Priest, Hear our humble prayers on behalf of your priests. Give them a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of his priestly life.
In their loneliness, comfort them in their sorrows, strengthen them in their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show them that they is needed by the Church, they are needed by souls, they are needed for the work of redemption.
O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your sons who is close to you because of their priestly ordination, and because of the power which they have received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs him so much. Be their comfort, be their joy, be their strength, and especially help them to live and to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.

Lord Jesus, hear our prayers for Fr. Keyes. Amen
