Short Prayer for Priests Under Attack

For the Victory of Jesus!

O Mary, Sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, Mother of the soverign priest and our advocate with the Father, we pray for the holiness of priests and of all those who are destined for the priesthood. Despoil them of self and bind them to Jesus Christ, you well beloved Son. Obtain for them an outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit so they will understand the greatness and the unique dignity of their vocation, and live solely as priests and victims with Jesus. Our Lady of the Cenacle, we beg you to intercede with the Holy Spirit that our world may be renewed by holy and fervent priests, so that your Son will be better known and loved, men will be saved, and God will be glorified for ever and ever. Amen.

O Jesus eternal priest, keep all thy priests within the shelter of thy Sacred Heart, where non may harm them. Keep unstained their anointed hands which daily touch thy Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips purpled with thy precious blood. Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime marks of thy glorious priesthood. Let thy holy love surround them and shield them from the worlds contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they have ministered be here below their joy and consolation and in Heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen. O Mary Queen of the clergy pray for us;; obtain for us a number of holy priests.


Pray for the conversion of sinners and those who persecute Christ in his mystical body through the priesthood.

    Dear Lisa,
    Thank you for this much needed prayer for our priests. Oh, how desperately they need our prayers, so that they can minister to lost souls and bring salvation to mankind through their holy orders of priesthood. God grant them the graces they need to do the work of Jesus Christ.
    God’s holy peace be with you.

      Thank you Denise, the priests are constantly on my heart. We really need to be offering penance and sacrifices for them in this time. The Lord is showing that we need to beg Him for graces for our priests, and He will maintain them in their holiness. God’s blessing to you and your family in this holy time of Lent.
