“Divine Savior, Jesus Christ, Who has entrusted the whole work of Your redemption and the welfare and salvation of the world, to priests as Your representatives, I offer You, through the hands of Your most holy Mother, all the prayers, works, sacrifices, joys and sorrows of this day for the sanctification of Your priests.
Give us truly holy priests who seek nothing but Your greater glory and the salvation of our souls. Bless their words and prayers at the altar, in the confessional, in the pulpit, in all their work for the young, the sick, and the aged.
O Mary, Mother of the High Priest, protect all priests from dangers to their holy vocation. Obtain for me a true spirit of faith and humble obedience, so that I may see the priest as a representative of God and willingly follow Him in the Way, the Truth, and the Life of Christ. Amen.”
