As we celebrate today’s Memorial of the Guardian Angels, we remember in prayer our priests:
Heavenly Father, your son Jesus Christ taught his disciples with the words,
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
We pray today for our priests, our spiritual shepherds. May they linger in the embrace of your love, secure in the knowledge that they are your precious little ones. We pray for their strength, their health, their courage and zeal. We lift to you their challenges and trials. We praise and thank you Father for their generous service and love for your Church and her people. Shine your heavenly face upon them until they rest in your embrace.
