Happy Priesthood Sunday!

PAPA is praying that all priests have a very blessed day! Priesthood Sunday is a day set aside to honor God's Holy Priesthood.

The best gift we can give our priests are our prayers. Here is the link for our PAPA Prayer for Priests. (Also at the bottom of the page.)

We are praying for our priests today.


Almighty Eternal God, look upon the face of Christ, and for the love of Him Who is the eternal High Priest, have mercy on Your priests.  Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings.  Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is bestowed on them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands.  Keep them close to You, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for Your lonely priests; for Your young priests;* for Your aged priests; for Your sick priests; for Your dying priests; * for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.

But above all I recommend to You the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me or helped me and encouraged me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, * particularly _______

(name the one priest who you believe is most in need now).

O Jesus, keep them close to Your Sacred Heart, * and bless them abundantly in time and eternity.


O Mary, Queen of the Apostles – Make your priests holy (3 times).

St. John Vianney – Pray for us.

St. Alphonsus – Pray for us.
