We should lke to see Jesus. Where and how do we see Jesus? Pray for a clear vision of Jesus in the Body of Christ that surrounds us; in the poor, the outcast and the suffering. Pray for the grace to stand with them. (John 12:20-33)

A prayer for protection of priests

Lord Jesus, have mercy upon your priests who are at great risk of physical harm and hate, even to the point of death. Guide their footsteps and protect their coming and going, their parishes and homes against all malicious harm. May your Precious Blood form an impenetrable defense around every priest!
We pray also for the priests who have suffered harm or unnatural death due to religious persecution and violent crime. Beloved Mary, Mother of all priests wrap your mantle of grace around these chosen men of God as a blanket of protection. And as you protected the one Eternal High Priest with maternal prayer and charity, please guard all priests from physical harm. Amen.
