Jesus, perfect high priest who is able to sympathize with our weaknesses, we ask you to sympathize with the weaknesses of our priests today.
Forgive their sins and failures.
Grant them strength to serve you.
Fill them with the desire to love as you have loved.
Teach them the truth which they must offer to others through their lives.
Remind them of the importance of rest here on earth, and bring them at last to perfect rest in heaven. Amen.
