Divine Saviour, Jesus Christ,
Who have entrusted your work of redemption to the priests,
Who take your place on earth,
I offer You,
through the hands of Your most holy Mother,
for the sanctification of Your priests
and future priests this whole day,
all my prayers, works, joys, sacrifices and sufferings.
Give us saintly priests.
Grant to them apostolic hearts,
filled with love for You
and all the souls belonging to You, so that,
being themselves sanctified in You,
they may sanctify us who are entrusted to their care
and bring us safely into Heaven.
bless all their priestly work and sacrifice.
Bless all their prayers and words at the altar
and in the confessional,
in the pulpit,
in the school and at the sickbed.
Call many young men to the priesthood and the monastic life.
Protect and sanctify all who will become Your priests.
And grant to the souls of the priests
who have departed this life, eternal rest.
And do you, Mary, Mother of all priests,
take them under your special protection
and lead them ever to the highest priestly sanctity.
St. Gerard, who, like the Saviour,
loved children so tenderly
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death,
listen to us who are pleading for our sick child.
We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter
and ask Him to restore our child to health
if such be His holy will. ... continue reading
