Jesus, our great High Priest, Hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priest, Father [N]. Give him a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of his priestly life. 
In his loneliness, comfort him In his sorrows, strengthen him In his frustrations, point out to him that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show him that he is needed by the Church, he is needed by souls, he is needed for the work of redemption.

O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your son who is close to you because of his priestly ordination, and because of the power which he has received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs him so much.
Be his comfort, be his joy, be his strength, and especially help him to live and to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy.

O Mary, 
Mother of Jesus Christ and Mother of priests, 
accept this title which we bestow on you 
to celebrate your motherhood 
and to contemplate with you the priesthood 
of, your Son and of your sons, 
O holy Mother of God.

O Mother of Christ, 
to the Messiah-priest you gave a body of flesh 
through the anointing of the Holy Spirit 
for the salvation of the poor and the contrite of heart; 
guard priests in your heart and in the Church, 
O Mother of the Savior.

O Mother of Faith, 
you accompanied to the Temple the Son of Man, 
the fulfillment of the promises given to the fathers; 
give to the Father for his glory 
the priests of your Son, 
O Ark of the Covenant.

O Mother of the Church, 
in the midst of the disciples in the upper room 
you prayed to the Spirit 
for the new people and their shepherds; 
obtain for the Order of Presbyters 
a full measure of gifts, 
O Queen of the Apostles.

O Mother of Jesus Christ, 
you were with him at the beginning 
of his life and mission, 
you sought the Master among the crowd, 
you stood beside him when he was lifted up from the earth
consumed as the one eternal sacrifice, 
and you had John, your son, near at hand; 
accept from the beginning those who have been called, 
protect their growth, 
in their life ministry accompany your sons, 
O Mother of Priests.
