Ad Te Levávi Ánimam Meam

To Thee have I lifted up my soul (Introit – 1st Sunday of Advent)

Prayer For Priests

Posted by james0235 on January 1, 2008

With today being the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God I think it is a good time to begin this particular Novena:



O Mary, Mother of Jesus

you were with Jesus

at the beginning of His life and mission.

You stood beside Jesus when He was lifted

on the cross and gave His life for all.

We ask you now to be with our priests,

who give themselves in service to God’s people.

Intercede for them that they may grow in holiness;

proclaim God’s word with courage;

celebrate the sacraments with joy;

and be among God’s people as Jesus,

the Good shepherd, was.

We offer this prayer to God, the Father,

through your intercession,

in the name of your Son, Jesus,

and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
