Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Priests
by Pope John Paul II
O Mother of Christ,
O, Mother of Faith,
O Mother of the Church,
For Priest, prayer to Blessed Mary of the Tears
O Blessed Lady of the Tears, we entrust and consecrate the priesthood to your Immaculate Heart!
Grant, O Lady of the Tears, an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all priests, that they may be authentic witnesses of your Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord. Give all priests and seminarians a deep love and devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist and to you, their loving Mother. Grant that every priest and seminarian will daily spend one hour with Jesus in the Eucharist and daily pray your most holy rosary! Grant all priests and seminarians the gift of purity, the gift of chastity and the gift of the divine love of your Son. May they proclaim the Truth with love and with courage! May we, too, comfort your Immaculate Heart by praying the rosary and adoring the Heart of Jesus your Son in the Most Holy Eucharist present in every Catholic Church in the world.
We ask all of our prayers through the Tears which you shed at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ your Son who lives and reigns with the Father and the Holy Spirit! Amen!
