Fr Ignacio Ortigas giving a blessing.JPGO my Jesus, I beg you on behalf of the whole Church:
Grant it love and the light of the your Spirit, and give power to the words of
priests so that hardened hearts might be brought to repentance and return to
you, O Lord.

Lord, give us holy priests; you yourself maintain them in
holiness. O Divine and Great High Priest, may the power of your mercy
accompany them everywhere and protect them from the devil’s traps and snares
which are continually being set for the souls of priests. May the power
of your mercy, O Lord, shatter and bring to naught all that might tarnish the
sanctity of priests, for you can do all things. Amen.

Saint John Vianney, pray for our priests.
