Love and Detachment, Thursday’s Prayer for Priests

Tree PeonyMy God, I pray for all your priests and beseech you to sanctify them. Let them love their sacrifice deeply so that they may live it lovingly. I beg you, grant them obedience, a spirit of detachment, a chastity which is constant and true, a spirit of self-denial, humility, sweetness, zeal and dedication. I beg you that all those who may approach them may leave them with a greater love for you. My God, I pray that through them your kingdom on earth may grow and be strengthened. O Jesus, I promise with all my heart to sacrifice myself with you. Amen.
