Lord Jesus, I pray you for all your priests

Lord Jesus, I pray you for all your priests:
cover them in your sanctity.
Let them love deeply and lovingly live
their sacrifice.
Make them keen to your will.
Release them from the things hither.
Give them the mystical peace of a luminous chastity.
Make it, O Lord, that no one will pass by them without growing in your love.
May they look with confidence to Mary and know how to understand her motherly protection.
And so that they may truly be priests according to your Heart and may your Kingdom be expanded through them in the world, accept, O Lord, the consecration of my life.

(P. de Condren e M. Olier)
