Heartiest Congratulations to all our priests who are celebrating their ordination anniversaries in the month of November and December 2023. Wishing them Ad Multos Annos.
A PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
O Jesus, our great High Priest, hear our humble prayers on behalf of our priest.
Give them a deep faith, a firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of their priestly life.
In their loneliness, comfort them. In their sorrows, strengthen them. In their frustrations, point out to them that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show them that they are needed by the Church; they are needed by souls; they are needed for the work of redemption.
O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your sons who are close to you because of their priestly ordination, and because of the power which they have received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs them so much.
Be their comfort, be their joy, be their strength, and especially help them to live and to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy. Amen
