Friday After Lent - St. Leander of Seville and St. Julian
For Avia (his Catalan grandmother), I hope the doctor tell her her finger is better.
For priests: Lord make them holy. May they ALWAYS be faithful to You and Holy Mother Church.
I read this prayer for priests on the comments of Fr. Z's blog.
Prayer for Priests
I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests;
for Your unfaithful and tepid priests;
for Your priests labouring at home or abroad in distant mission fields;
for Your tempted priests;
for Your lonely and desolate priest;
for Your young priests;
for Your dying priests;
for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.
But above all I recommend to You 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 Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;
the priests who taught and instructed me;
all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way.
O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart,
and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.
