ORACION DE SANTA TERESITA POR LA SANTIFICACION DE LOS SACERDOTES

Oh Jesús, que has instituido el sacerdocio para continuar en la tierra la obra divina de salvar almas; protege a tus sacerdotes en el refugio de tu Sagrado Corazón. Guarda sin mancha sus manos consagradas, que diariamente tocan tu Sagrado Cuerpo, y conserva puros sus labios teñidos con tu Preciosa Sangre. Haz que se preserven puros sus corazones, marcados con el sello sublime del sacerdocio, y no permitas que el espíritu del mundo los contamine. Aumenta el número de tus apóstoles, y que tu santo amor los proteja de todo peligro. Bendice sus trabajos y fatigas, y que como fruto de su apostolado, obtengan la salvación de muchas almas, que sean su consuelo aquí en la tierra y su corona eterna en el cielo. Amén.


PRAYER FOR OUR PRIESTS

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 sinners, 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.

(St. Theresa of Calcutta)
