God blesses us with shepherds to lead us closer to Him. We are grateful to God for this kindness. Our priests work day after day to fulfill their vocation as the "hands and feet of Christ" in this world. Their work requires our support. One of the best ways to thank God for this blessing is to pray each day for our priests. Below, you will find a prayer written for just this purpose and a calendar outline a priest to pray for each day. Please join us in in our effort to express our thanksgiving to God for the gift of His shepherds!
Prayer for Our Priests
You have constituted Your only begotten Son supreme and eternal Priest
for the glory of your majesty
and the salvation of mankind:
grant that those whom He has chosen
as ministers and dispensers
of His mysteries may be
found faithful in fulfilling
the ministry they have received.
Today we pray especially for (name).
Teach, lead and guide him always.
Correct, enlighten and
expand his thoughts and behavior.
Possess his soul;
take over his entire personality and life.
Let him live in you and
keep him in this intimate union always.
We ask this through Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

I Will Worship Only The LORD
Naaman went down and plunged into the Jordan seven times
at the word of Elisha, the man of God.
His flesh became again like the flesh of a little child,
and he was clean of his leprosy.
Naaman returned with his whole retinue to the man of God.
On his arrival he stood before Elisha and said,
“Now I know that there is no God in all the earth,
except in Israel.
Please accept a gift from your servant.”
Elisha replied, “As the LORD lives whom I serve, I will not take it;”
and despite Naaman's urging, he still refused.
Naaman said: “If you will not accept,
please let me, your servant, have two mule-loads of earth,
for I will no longer offer holocaust or sacrifice
to any other god except to the LORD.”
2Kings 5: 14-17
