Litany for Priests

Jesus, meek and humble of heart,
   give all priests Thy spirit of humility;

Jesus, poor and worn out for souls,
   give all priests Thy spirit of zeal;

Jesus, full of patience and mercy for sinners,
   give all priests Thy spirit of compassion;

Jesus, victim for the sins of the world,
   give all priests Thy spirit of sacrifice;

Jesus, lover of the little and the poor,
   give all priests Thy spirit of charity.

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us;
   and obtain for us numerous and holy priests and religious. Amen.
