St. Faustinas's Prayer for Priests

Thank you, John Michael, for sending this prayer...

St. Faustina's Prayer for priests:

O my Jesus,
I beg You on behalf of the whole Church;
grant it love and the light of Your Spirit,
and give power to the words of priests
so that hardened hearts might be brought
to repentance and return to You, O Lord.
Lord, give us holy priests;
You yourself maintain them in holiness.
O Divine and Great High Priest,
may the power of Your mercy accompany them
everywhere and protect them
from the devil's traps and snares
which are continually being set
for the souls of priests.
May the power of Your mercy, O Lord,
shatter and bring to naught all
that might tarnish the sanctity of priests,
for You can do all things. (1052) Amen.

I say this prayer nightly and never knew it was St. Faustina! At the end I add the name of my spiritual son.
Thanks to both of you!
