We thank you for our faithful priests, whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, sacrifice and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.
Give your priests courageous faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you and all your people. May they grow in holiness and may the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.
We ask your blessing upon our seminarians and all men who are discerning a call to the priesthood. We also beg you to stir into the flame the call to the priesthood that you have placed in the hearts of many men in our diocese and throughout the Church.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Eternal High Priest. Amen
St. John Vianney, Patron of Priests, pray for us and all our priests.
