Pray for Priests

PrayForPriests-IconThe mission of the Pray for Priests ministry is to encourage the lay faithful of Holy Cross to pray for our priests. Specifically, we desire to lift up our priests and build them in fortitude and conviction as they seek to fully live out their vocation as our spiritual shepherds. In the summer of 2012 we began to distribute Pray for Priests prayer cards to the parish community. Other ideas will be developed to draw the Holy Cross community into prayer for our priests.   Contact: Caroline Camick, or Teresa Vigil,

  • PRAYER FOR PRIESTS: O Jesus, eternal Priest, keep your priests, especially within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Your holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.

    OREN POR LOS SACERDOTES Un ministerio de la Parroquia de Holy Cross Oren diariamente por el sacerdote asignado a ese día. O Jesús, Eterno Sacerdote, protege a tus sacerdotes, especialmente < nombre del sacerdote > dentro de Tu Sagrado Corazón, donde nadie pueda tocarlos. Mantiene sin mancha sus manos ungidas, que diariamente tocan Tu Santo Cuerpo. Mantiene sin mancillar sus labios, todos los días con el color púrpura de Tu Preciosa Sangre. Mantiene puros y no mundanos sus corazones, sellados con la marca sublime del sacerdocio. Deja que Tu Santo Amor los rodee y protégelos del virus del mundo. Bendice sus labores con fruto abundante y permite que las almas a su cuidado sean su alegría y consuelo aquí y en el cielo su bella y eterna corona. Amen.
