Year of the Priest 
Let us pray: 

Grant, O God Our Father,
that our priests be strengthened and healed
by the power of the Eucharist they celebrate.
May the Word they proclaim
give them courage and wisdom.
We pray that all those whom they serve
may see in them the love and care
of Jesus Christ, our Eternal High Priest,
who is Lord for ever and ever.  Amen
