Prayer for the Holy Church

In union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary I salute and worship the Holy Wound of Thy right hand, O Jesus, and in this wound I place all the priests of Thy Holy Church.

Give them as often as they celebrate Thy Holy Sacrifice the fire of Thy Divine Love, that they may be able to bestow it upon souls entrusted to their care.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I salute and worship the Holy Wound in Thy left hand, and in this wound I place all the heretics and unbelievers, these poorest who do not know Thee. In behalf of these souls, O Jesus send many and good laborers into Thy vineyard, so that they may find the way to Thy Most Sacred Heart.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I salute and worship the Holy Wounds of Thy Sacred Feet, and I place therein the hardened sinners, that love the world more than they love Thee, O Jesus, let not Thy Precious Blood be shed for them in vain.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I salute and worship the Holy Wounds in Thy Sacred Head, and in these wounds I place the enemies of Thy Holy Church, all those that scourge and persecute Thee, in Thy Mystical Body. I beg Thee, O Jesus, convert them, call them, as Thou called Saul to become Paul, so that soon there may be one Shepherd and one fold.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

I salute and worship the Holy Wound of Thy Sacred Heart, and in this wound I give to Thee, O Jesus, my soul and all for whom Thou want me to pray, especially the suffering and the oppressed, the persecuted and abandoned, give them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Light and Thy Grace. Fill us all with Thy Love and Thy Peace.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Heavenly Father through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer Thee Thy Most beloved Son and myself with Him, in Him and through Him for His intentions and in the name of all creatures.

Amen

Prayer for Priests

O almighty eternal God, look upon the face of Thy Christ, and for love of Him who is the eternal High-priest, have pity on Thy priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands. Keep them close to Thee, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

O Jesus, I pray Thee for Thy faithful and fervent priests; for Thy unfaithful and tepid priests; for Thy priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Thy tempted priests; for Thy lonely and desolate priests; for Thy young priests; for Thy aged priests; for Thy sick priests; for Thy dying priests; for the souls of Thy priests in purgatory.

But above all I commend to Thee the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Thy Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me or helped me and encouraged me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particulary [state name of priest(s)]. O Jesus, keep them all close to Thy heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen

— St. Therese of Lisieux

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many and holy priests.

 

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.

I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son.

I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.

Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn.

I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all my brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all, through Christ our Lord.

Amen!
