O Jesus, Eternal Priest,
keep your servants within the shelter of your Sacred Heart, where none may harm them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands;
keep unsullied their lips; keep pure and unearthly their hearts sealed with the sublime marks of your glorious priesthood.
Let your holy love surround them
and shield them from the world’s contagion.
Bless their labours with abundant fruit,
and may the souls to whom they minister,
be here below, their joy and consolation,
and in heaven, their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.
Heart of Jesus, Protect and sanctify our priests. Amen.
