Almighty and Eternal God

look with mercy upon Your priests,

sharing Your Fatherhood in Holy Church.

Your Son, the Lord Jesus, has made them

priests and victims with Himself:

day by day may they offer the worship

of His Mystical Body

in the Eucharistic Sacrifice,

with their own homage

of heart, mind and body.

By the Holy Spirit, make them zealous

in their priestly ministry;

keep them devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary,

obedient to the Pope and their own Bishop,

and through them inspire young men

to serve You in the priesthood.

To You, O Holy Trinity,

Be honour and glory forever and ever.  Amen.
