Starting the Year for Priests Right…

…with a prayer for priests:

Jesus, I pray to You for Your faithful and fervent priests; for the unfaithful and tepid; for those laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for tempted priests; for the lonely and desolate; for young priests; for the aged, sick, and dying; for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.But above all I commend to You the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; those who absolved me from my sins; at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your body and blood in Holy Communion; who taught and instructed me or helped me and encouraged me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particularly (NAME).

Jesus, keep them all close to Your Heart and bless them abundantly in time and eternity. Amen.
