Please pray for your parish priest. Encourage him and help.. not by always offering ways for him to make things better, but by YOU helping him. PRAY that his soul be pure and unworldly and that he is able to seek only the will of God.

Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me;
still, not my will but yours be done. Luke 22:42





Encourage your priests to have frequent Confession.
Not just on Saturday afternoon but after weekday Mass as well.
Frequent Confession changes your life.





Remember



If the priest is a saint, his people will be holy.
If the priest is holy, his people will be good.
If the priest is good, his people will be fair.
If the priest is fair, his people will be mediocre.
If the priest is mediocre, his people will be bad.
. . . . You must never forget that priests are,
and that they remain, men.
God does not perform a miracle to wrest them
from the human state.
The priesthood does not of itself give a person
the power to do everything or to excel in everything.
It is important to remember this
lest you fall into a very old error
. . . that of dehumanizing the priesthood and consequently
of setting the priest outside of ordinary life.
That does great harm for by thus isolating him,
as unbelievers do, to the exclusive realm of ceremonies
. . . he is deprived in good part of his reason for being.
If men refuse to pass through him, he no longer can be,
at least fully, their mediator.
~ Cardinal Suhard


Give Priests Your Grace

Eternal God, please bless our priests,
who represent You on this earth.
Make them more greatly aware of the grace
that You pour out through them when they minister
the sacraments, and help them to fall more
deeply in love with You after each and every
Mass that they celebrate.
Please strengthen our priests, who shepherd
Your flock, when they are in doubt of their faith,
that they may be examples of Your Truth
and guide us always on the path to You.
We ask these things of You, our Eternal Priest. Amen.



"Christ held Himself in His hands when He gave His Body to His disciples saying: '
This is My Body.' No one partakes of this Flesh before he has adored it." ~ St. Augustine





Thank You Father

Dear Jesus,
How can we ever properly thank You for our priests?
They have given up everything for us, forsaking the world to nourish our souls with the Eucharist and to heal our
wounds through Confession. Send forth Your Holy Spirit, right now, in a flood--nay--a supernatural
torrent of grace, in swift and sure answer to this plea, bringing consolations and courage and purity and joy to our
beloved priests. As only You can do, whisper into their hearts that we love them so. As only You can do, enwrap each man wearing a cassock and collar in the loving maternal arms of your Mother, who wept with You and stayed with You during your hours of suffering during Your crucifixion. We ask this in Your Holy Name, the name above all names: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus! Amen.


~By: John J. Cardinal Carberry





Prayer To Give Us Good Holy Priests

O Holy Father, may the torrents of love flowing from the Sacred Wounds of Your Divine Son bring forth priests like unto the beloved disciple John, who stood at the foot of the cross; priests, who as a pledge of Your own most tender love will lovingly give your Divine Son to the souls of men. May Your priests be faithful guardians of Your Church, as John was of Mary, whom he received into his house. Taught by this loving Mother who suffered so much on Calvary, may they display a mother's care and thoughtfulness towards Your children. May they teach souls to enter into close union with You through Mary who, as the Gate of Heaven, is specially the guardian of the treasures of Your Divine Heart.


Give us priests who are on fire, and who are true children of Mary, priests who will give Jesus to souls with the same tenderness and care with which Mary carried the Little Child of Bethlehem. Mother of sorrows and of love, out of compassion for your beloved Son, open in our hearts, deep wells of love, so that we may console Him and give Him a generation of priests formed in your school and having all the tender thoughtfulness of your own spotless love. Amen.


~St. Therese of Lisieux
