PRAYER FOR THE PROTECTION OF PRIESTS

by Mother St. Teresa of Calcutta
Mary, Mother of Jesus,
throw your mantle of purity over our priests.
Protect them, guide them, and keep them in your heart.
Be a Mother to them, especially in times of discouragement and loneliness.
Love them and keep them belonging completely to Jesus.
Like Jesus, they, too, are your sons, so keep their hearts pure and virginal.
Keep their minds filled with Jesus, and put Jesus always on their lips,
so that he is the one they offer to sinner and to all they meet.
Mary, Mother of Jesus, be their Mother, loving them and bringing them joy.
Take special care of sick and dying priests, and the ones most tempted.
Remember how they spent their youth and old age, their entire lives serving and giving all to Jesus.
Mary, bless them and keep a special place for them in your heart.
Give them a piece of your heart, so beautiful and pure and immaculate,
so full of love and humility, so that they, too, can grow in the likeness of Christ.
Dear Mary, make them humble like you, and holy like Jesus.

Amen.
OUR LADY OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD
My beloved Jesus, by the Precious Blood which you did shed on the day of the Circumcision, deign to watch over the infancy and the early education of the children whom you have destined to minister at the altar, that they may be preserved spotless till consecrated to you by the Holy Unction. Bless the families that honor your Precious Blood and spread this devotion by choosing from their midst a large number of vocations to the priesthood and by maintaining their fervor till the close of the their lives.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by the Precious Blood you did shed in the Garden of Olives, take pity on all aspirants to the priesthood who, through the temptations of the evil one, or dread of the responsibilities of the sacred ministry, are in danger of losing their vocation. Impart to these tortured souls sufficient courage to make the sacrifices by which the Eucharistic Chalice must be purchased; and in return for their generosity, inebriate them at the altar with the Blood which, in Heaven, shall be their eternal source of delight.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by the Precious Blood shed in your painful Scourging, shield with your own special protection and that of your Immaculate Mother all ministers of the sanctuary so that, having renounced the goods of earth in order to belong entirely to you, they may every day offer and receive your Body and Blood with such pious disposition as to enable you to find in their hearts a “Paradise of Delight.”
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by the Precious Blood which you did shed in your Crowning with Thorns, we beseech you to maintain our clergy in such filial submission to the Holy See and its representatives as will forever secure them the veneration, confidence and docility of the faithful children of Holy Church.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by your Precious Blood shed on the Way to Calvary take pity on priests who are victims of injustice and who like their Adorable Model, receive in return for their devotedness but crosses, trials, and persecutions.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, by the Blood of your Crucifixion, inflame with ever increasing zeal the dispensers of your Blood. Grant that, thirsting like you for souls, they may continue the work of your Bloody Passion by applying its merits. Succor most of all the poor missionaries who, after watering with their sweat and their tears the soil in which they have sown the Divine Seed, may still be called upon to dye with their blood the land upon which they planted the Cross.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus, through the Blood and Water shed by you after death, take special pity we beseech you on those among your ministers who will soon be mown down by death. If, through human frailty, they have become the debtors of your justice, grant that this very day the infinitely Precious Blood may discharge their obligations.
Our Lady of the Precious Blood, watch over the living chalices of the Blood of Jesus. Amen.
