Pope John Paul II, Intercessor for Priests

| | Comments (1)


A priest said yesterday that since he began reciting daily this prayer to the Servant of God Pope John Paul II, he has received everything for which it asks. I thought it worth sharing with you, dear readers.

Holy Father John Paul,
be a father to my soul.
Pray for me, protect me, instruct me,
and guide me in the way of holiness.
Obtain for me the gift of perfect chastity,
burning love for the Eucharist,
total dedication to Christ and to the Church,
and the grace to conduct myself always and everywhere
in a manner worthy of the Priesthood of Jesus Christ.


I think this would be an excellent prayer for us lay folks to use. By changing the wording a little bit, it could be used to pray for priests either individually or collectively.
