Pray for our Priests this Divine Mercy Sunday

O Jesus, I pray
For Your faithful and fervent priests;
For Your unfaithful and tepid priests;
For Your priests laboring at home or abroad
in distant mission fields;
For Your tempted Priests;
For Your lonely and desolate Priests;
For Your imprisoned and Martyred Priests;
For Your dying Priests;
For the souls of your Priests in Purgatory.

But above all I recommend to You the Priests dearest to me;
The Priest who baptized me;
The Priests who have absolved me from my sins;
The Priests at whose Masses I assisted
and who gave me Your Body and Blood
in Holy Communion;
The Priest who taught and instructed me;
And also the Priest who may have
wounded or hurt me.

All the Priests to whom I am indebted to,
in any other way, I pray;
O Jesus, keep them close to Your Heart,
And bless them abundantly
In time and in Eternity~
