Sacred Heart Prayer for Priests

I photographed this painting of the Sacred Heart in the church of St. Mary Magdalene today (previous post about that church here), and as I looked through the blog archives I came across the following prayer, which I posted last year. A good prayer to say during this Month of the Sacred Heart!


O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Father _____ and all Your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, where none may harm them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of Your glorious priesthood. Let Your holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister here below be their joy and consolation, and in Heaven their everlasting crown. Amen.

    And perhaps we could add on to that a prayer of heartfelt thanksgiving for all our priests.

    I stopped and said this prayer for you and all other priests. I love my priests in Atlanta. They are all wonderful as you said.

    Surely EVERY Catholic man and women pray for Priests?! Espc their Pastor and deacons? I know we as a family have always done so! Its our Obligation and duty… and our pleasure!

    Father, I will say this prayer for you this month, and for all the priests whom I know here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

    God bless you, and I keep you and your fellow students in my prayers as you finish your studies.
