The general intention

That priests, united to the Heart of Christ, may always be true witnesses to the caring and merciful love of God.

The missionary intention

That the Holy Spirit may bring forth from our communities many missionaries who are ready to be fully consecrated to spreading the Kingdom of God.

When the bishop of a diocese celebrates the Chrism Mass during Holy Week each year he does two things: he blesses and consecrates the holy oils used for the sacraments and he leads the assembled priests in the "Renewal of Commitment to Priestly Service." The laity are asked by the bishop to pray for their priests asking "the Lord to bless them with the fullness of his love, to help them be faithful ministers of Christ the High Priest, so that they will be able to lead" the faithful to their eternal destiny: life with the Most Blessed Trinity.
