A Prayer for Priests of St Therese of Lisieux

Please find below a prayer for Priests of St Therese of Lisieux from Father Pritchard.

I pray that the God of peace, who brought our Lord Jesus back from the dead to become the great Shepherd of the sheep by the blood that sealed an eternal covenant, may make you ready to do his will in any kind of good action; and turn us all into whatever is acceptable to himself through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13: 20-21

This is the prayer for priests of St Therese of Lisieux:

O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands,
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with your Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
Let Your holy love surround them
And shield them from the world’s contagion.
Bless their labours with abundant fruit
And may the souls to whom they minister
be their joy and consolation
here and in heaven
their beautiful and everlasting crown.
