“Only the “new” person can sing a new song to the Lord:
the person restored from a fallen condition through the grace of God.
Let us sing a new song –
not with our lips
but with our lives!”

St Augustine (354-430) Father and Doctor of the Church

“All the children of the Church are priests.
At Baptism, they received the anointing
that gives them a share in the priesthood.
The sacrifice which they must offer to God
is completely spiritual – it is THEMSELVES!”

St Ambrose (340-397) Father and Doctor of the Church

HOLY THURSDAY: PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

Catholics Striving for Holiness (OLD)

HOLY THURSDAY:
PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

As we commemorate today the Institution of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, let us thank God for the gift of priesthood, pray for our priests and ask for more priestly vocations all over the world.

Gracious and loving God, we thank your for the gift of our priests.
Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments.

Help our priests to be strong in their vocation.
Set their souls on fire with love for your people.

Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom.

Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel.
Allow them to experience joy in their ministry.

Help them to become instruments of your divine grace.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.

Amen.
