PRAYER FOR PRIESTS AND VOCATIONS TO THE PRIESTHOOD

O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of your sacred heart,
where none may touch them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch your sacred body.
Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your precious blood.
Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of your priesthood.
Let your holy love surround them, and shield them from the world's contagion.
Bless their labors with abundant fruit,
and may the souls to whom they minister
be their joy and consolation here on earth,
and in heaven, their everlasting crown.
Mary, Mother of Priests,
pray for priests and vocations to the priesthood.
- St. Thérèse of Lisieux
