Prayer for All Priests

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for Your lonely and desolate priests; 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 tough and instructed me; and all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way.  O Jesus, Keep them close to Your Heart and bless them abundantly in time and eternity. 

Oh Mary, Queen of the clergy, pray for us; obtain for us a number of holy priests.  Amen
