In the Year of the Priest we pray:
Loving God,
We thank you for our faithful priests and bishops, whose example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you and for all your people throughout the world. May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
