PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
We fly to Thy protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.
PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
PRAYER FOR PRIESTS written by St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face
O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of Your Most Sacred Heart, where none can touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips daily tinged with Your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Your holy love surround and protect them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here, and their everlasting crown in the hereafter. Amen
PRAYER TO BEGIN EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
Lord Jesus, our Merciful Priest, I adore You present in the Blessed Sacrament. I offer this hour in union with all my brothers and sisters adoring Your Eucharistic Presence for all Your priests, in particular…(here mention the name of priests). Let me hear Your voice calling me Your beloved child in response to Your call, Listen…incline your ear to me (Ps. 45:11). In imitation to Your beloved disciple at the Eucharistic table, allow me to rest in Your Sacred Heart. I come to You, ready to receive from Your fountain of grace and mercy. In like manner I beg of You, Let my prayer come into your presence. Incline your ear to my cry for help, O Lord (cf. Ps. 88:3). Amen.
THANKSGIVING AFTER EUCHARISTIC ADORATION
I thank You, my God, for allowing me to adore You and to receive from Your goodness. May the grace You bestowed from this hour scatter our darkness, heal our wounds, strengthen our weaknesses and provide graces in abundance to Your priests that they may offer themselves fully to You and truly be priests after your own Heart (cf. Jer. 3:15). Amen.
ACT OF LOVE OF THE HOLY CURE OF ARS
I love You, O my God, and my only desire is to love You, until the last breath of my life. I love You, O infinitely lovable God, and I prefer to die loving You, rather than to live for an instant without You. I love You, O my God, and I desire only to go to heaven, to have the happiness of loving You perfectly. I love You, O my God, and my only fear is to go to hell, because one will never have the sweet solace, of loving You there. O my God, if my tongue cannot say at all times that I love You, at least I want my heart to repeat it to You as many times as I breathe. Ah! Do me the grace: to suffer while loving You, to love You while suffering, and, that when I die: I not only will love You but experience it in my heart. I beg You that the closer I come to my final end, You will increase and perfect my love for You. Amen.
CHAPLET OF REPARATION FOR PRIESTS by Father Mark Kirby
This chaplet of reparation and intercession is meant to be prayed on an ordinary five-decade rosary.
Incline (+) unto my aid, O God;
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Alleluia. (After Septuagesima: Praise be to Thee, O Lord, King of eternal glory.)
On the Our Father beads:
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Thy Beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb without blemish or spot (1 Peter 1:19) in reparation for my sins and for the sins of all Thy priests.
On the Hail Mary beads:
By Thy Precious Blood, O Jesus, purify and sanctify Thy priests.
In place of the Glory be to the Father:
O Father, from whom all fatherhood in heaven and on earth is named (Ephesians 3:15), have mercy on all Thy priests, and wash them in the Blood of the Lamb.
