Litany for the Priests

We beseech Thee, hear us.
Bless our Holy Father, our bishops, and priests,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Give them the strenght of Thy Grace, the love of Thy heart,
and the spirit of sacrifice of Thine own divine life,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Make them firm in faith, holy in conduct, and faithful in Thy service,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Fill them with the zeal of the Apostles, with the courage of the martyrs, with the spirit of the confessors,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Grant that they may convert the sinners, correct the erring, teach the ignorant,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Strengthen them with joy in their labors, with patience in their sufferings, with
endurance in their struggles, We beseech Thee, hear us.
Preserve them in love for the little ones, in zeal for the education of youth,
in loyalty to people and country,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Bless their words in the pulpit, their instructions in school,
their admonitions in the confessional and at the sicked bed,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Preserve them from the temptations of the wicked enemy, from the hostile plots
of unscrupulous men, from all occasions of sin,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Make us one with them in faith, loyal in divine service, and holy in life,
We beseech Thee, hear us.
Give us holy bishops, holy priests, holy missionaries,
We beseech Thee, hear us.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy on us!

Let us pray.
Jesus Christ, Son of God, Thou hast said: The harvest is indeed great,
but the laborers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest that
He send laborers into His vineyard.

Behold, we beg of Thee to increase the number of holy priests who walk
in Thy footsteps and labor in Thy vineyard with apostolic zeal.
Give them Thy light and Thy grace, that they may convert unbelievers
and heretics, strengthen the weak, and spread Thy kingdom ever more and more
upon earth. Grant that in unshakable fidelity we may stand firmly by Thy
representative, may listen to his words, and support the labors of the shepherds
of our souls by a devout and Christian life.
Let our prayers be acceptable to Thee and hear our petitions. Who livest and reignest
forever and ever. Amen.
