PRAYER FOR THE HOLY FATHER:
O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Your faithful people, mercifully look upon your servant [Francis I], whom You
have chosen as the chief Shepherd to preside over Your Church. We beg You to help him edify, both by word and example, those
over whom he has charge, that he may reach everlasting life together with the flock entrusted to him. Through Christ our Lord.
US PRAY FOR ALL OUR CLERGY
Let us pray for all our clergy, the greatest and the least,
that God may always guide and keep His consecrated priests.
their words or their hands, if these things ever ceased, we would have no Holy Sacrifice, no Eucharistic Feast.
No Sacramental Jesus on our altars to adore, but just an empty chalice
behind a golden door.
There would be no holy angels there
in awe and adoration, if we had no priests to say the words of
We still would have the temple, but we would not have the King.
Before a polished marble altar we would pray and we would sing.
No sacrifice, no sacraments, each with its special grace, could any
loss as great as this befall the human race?
our parents' marriages, baptize us after birth, anoint us with the holy oils when we are about to leave this earth.
Priests receive the power to forgive the wrongs we have done; when
confessed with contrite heart, they are forgiven, every one.
labor in the Mission fields in strange and distant lands, and heathen souls are made Heaven's heirs by holy priestly hands.
Let us pray for all our clergy, the greatest and the least, that God
may always guide and keep His consecrated priests.
if we lose these holy men whom Christ sent in His stead, we will also lose those precious gifts for which He died and bled.
