St. John Vianney

Patron of Priests

Heavenly Father,
We thank you for our faithful priests,
whose spiritual fatherhood and example
of fidelity, sacrifice, and devotion is so
vital to the faith of your people.
Give our priests courageous faith in the
face of confusion and conflict, hope in
time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast
love for you and for all your people. May
they grow in holiness and may the light of
your truth shine through their lives and
their good works.
We ask your blessing upon our seminarians
and all men who are discerning a call to the
priesthood. We also beg you to stir into
flame the call to the priesthood that you
have placed in the hearts of many men in
our diocese and throughout the Church.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our
Eternal High Priest. Amen
St. John Vianney, Patron of Priests,
pray for us and for all our priests.
