Priesthood Sunday – September 25th
Did you know?
Personal prayer, daily Eucharist, and Liturgy of the Hours characterizes the regular prayer life of sisters, brothers, and priests.
Priesthood Sunday on September 25th specifically honors priests, without whom the Mass could not be offered and Sacraments could not be celebrated.
Please make sure you thank and pray for your priests this weekend.
Gracious and loving God, we thank you for the gift of our priests.
Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments.
Help them, and all 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.
Prayer from: The Parish of Our Lady of Sorrows – St. Anthony – Hamilton, NJ
