" Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them."

~ Pope St. Felix III

A Prayer for Priests and Priestly Vocations

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for our faithful priests,

whose spritual fatherhood and example of fidality, sacrifice,

 and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.

Give our priests courages faith in the face of confusion and conflict,

hope in time of trouble and sorrow,

and steadfast love for you and for all your people.

 May they grow in holiness and may the light of your truth

shine through their lives and their good works.

We ask your blessings upon our seminarians

and all men who are discerning a call to the priesthood.

We also beg you to stir into flame the call to the priesthood

that you have placed in the hearts of many men in our diocese and throughout the Church.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Eternal High Priest.Amen. 

 

  A  PRAYER FOR PRIESTS 

 

~ St. Peter Julian Eymard         

                O my God, help those priests who are faithful to remain faithful;                     

to those who are failing, stretch forth Your Divine Hand

that they may grasp it as their support.

In the great ocean of Your mercy, lift those

poor unfortunate ones who have fallen,

that being engulfed therein they may receive

the grace to return to your Great Loving Heart. Amen.

to those who are suffering under the weight of the Cross.

Give them the love of your Son

and zeal for the honor and glory of God, and the salvation of souls. Amen.
