Prayer to St Joseph for a Particular Priest

Posted on May 30, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Saint Joseph,I present to you this dayFather N.,
priest of Jesus Christ,
and beg you to be to him
advocate and defender,counselor and friend.
Open your heart to him
as you opened your home to the Virgin Mother
in her hour of need.
Protect his holy priesthood
as you protected the life of the Infant Jesus
threatened by cruel Herod.
In darkness bring him light;
in weakness, strength,
and in fear the peace that passes understanding.
For the sake of the tender love that bound you
to the Virgin Mary and the Infant Christ,
be for him, Saint Joseph, a constant intercessor
and a shield against every danger
of body, mind, and soul
so that, in spite of his weaknesses and sins,
his priesthood may bring glory to Jesus Christ
and serve to increase the beauty of holiness
in his bride the Church.
Amen.

From Vultus Christi
Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests Main
