Prayer for Priests
(St Charles Borromeo)
has chosen to serve the Church. Help them, by your intercession,
to be holy, zealous and chaste.
Make them models of virtue in the service of God's people.
Help them be pious in meditation, efficacious in preaching,
and zealous in the daily offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Help them administer the sacraments with joy. Amen.
Joyously remembering the Ordination of
and in gratitude for all men Our Lord has called to the altar as priests.
