If I saw an angel and a priest

I would bend my knee;

First to the priest

and then to the angel.

– – St. Francis of Assisi – –

Let us Pray for Priests using the words of Saint Therese of Lisieux (The Little Flower):

O Jesus,
eternal Priest,
keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Thy Sacred Body.

Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood.

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.

Let Thy holy love surround them and shield them
from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here, and in Heaven, their beautiful and everlasting crown.
