Daily Offering Prayers for our Priests

Divine Savior Jesus Christ,
who has entrusted the whole work of your redemption,
the welfare, and salvation of the world to priests as your representatives,
through the hands of your most holy Mother and for the sanctification of your
priests and candidates for the priesthood,
I offer you this present day wholly and entirely,
with all its prayers, works, joys, sacrifices, and sorrows.
Give us truly holy priests who, inflamed with the fire of your divine love,
seek nothing but your greater glory and the salvation of our souls.

And you, Mary, good Mother of priests,
protect all priests in the dangers of their holy vocation and, with
the loving hand of a Mother, also lead back to the Good Shepherd
those poor priests who have become unfaithful to their exalted vocation and have gone astray.
