As we come to the feast day of S John Vianney,

Patron Saint of priests,

please pray for priests everywhere

Here’s a brief prayer to help you:

 

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest and gracious Shepherd; bless your servants whom You have consecrated to minister to You in holy things; and grant them such purity of heart and life, and such zeal for souls, that they may, by the working of the Holy Spirit, bring many into union with You, and fulfil the ministry entrusted to them in holiness,  to Your glory, our Lord and Saviour; who are alive and reign in the unity of the Father and the same Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen 

S John Vianney: pray with us,  pray for us
