To the Mother of All Priests

Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, under the Cross thou didst become the Mother of the Apostles, and so also, the Mother of all priests. Thy house is the Church, thy table, the altar; thy servants art the Angels, and thy sons, the priests, change bread and wine as of old. The Lord said: Take eat . . . This is My Body.  . . . Drink . . . This is My Blood!" He had not only earthly bread in mind, when He taught us the "Our Father," He wishes Himself to be our daily Bread!

Ever faithful Mother, thou dost wish that thy house, the Church, to be preserved and well ordered. Pray for a constant supply of priests so that the daily bread of eternal life may always be supplied!

Send thy Angels into families, so that Joy in the service of God may be cultivated, so that the service of the King may become their vocation.

Send again thy Angels, so that holy priests may lead these young men to the altar. A holy crusade for God is needed. An effort to preserve the purity of our holy Faith and the good shepherd is more than ever necessary; now that the wolf has broken into the fold.

Intercede also, Mother of all priests, for all those priests in peril or in error, who no longer see their way and their goal and choose to follow their own opinions.

No mother deserts her child when it is in danger. Send then thy holy Angels with warnings so urgent that they cannot be ignored!

Mary, Our Lord's Mother, hold out as ransom money to thy Divine Son, thy hands, thy Heart and thy tears. He will accept them all, and grant His priests, the true light, due strength and the joy they have lost awhile. Amen.

Two Prayers for Priests by St. Teresa of Avila and St. Catherine of Siena

O my Most Sweet Jesus, O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, keep Thy priests in the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where no one can hurt them. Keep their anointed hands unsullied, which daily handle Thy Sacred Body. Keep pure the lips which are reddened with Thy Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts which are sealed with the sublime token of Thy glorious priesthood. Cause them to grow in love and loyalty to Thee and protect them from the contamination of the world. With their power of transforming bread and wine, give them the power of transforming hearts. Bless their work with rich fruit and grant them one day the crown of eternal life. Amen.

[St. Teresa]

Hear Thy servant and look not upon the multitude of my sins. I beseech Thee, direct the hearts and wills of the servants of Thy Bride, the Holy Church, unto Thyself so that they may follow the poor, bleeding, humble, and gentle Lamb of God on the way of the Cross. Make them angels in the shape of men; for after all, they have to administer and distribute the Body and Blood of Thine Only Begotten Son! Amen.

[St. Catherine of Siena]
