ZHBM Prayers for Priests St. Thérèse of Lisieux Prayer for Priests

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 the 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

and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown.

 

AMEN.
