PRAYER FOR HOLY PRIESTS
O Holy Mother of God,
pray for the priests
your Son has chosen to serve the church.
Help them by your intercession,
to be holy,
zealous and chaste.
Make them models of virtue
in the service of God’s people.
Help them to be prayerful in meditations,
effective in preaching,
and enthusiastic in the daily offering of
the holy sacrifice of the Mass.
Help them to administer the sacraments with joy.
