Almighty God, look upon the face of Him who is the eternal High Priest, and have compassion on Your priests in today's world. Remember that they are but weak
and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation. Keep them close to You lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.
O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests, for the unfaithful and tepid ones for those laboring at home and abroad in distant mission fields for those who are tempted for those who are lonely and desolate for those who are in purgatory.
But, above all, I recommend to You the priests dearest to me the priest who baptized me the priests who absolved me from my sins the priests who instructed me or helped me by their encouragement. I pray devoutly for all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way. O Jesus,
keep them all close to Your heart and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.
O Mary, Queen of the clergy, pray for us obtain for us a number of holy priests. Amen.
