Horror of Sin
Saint John Mary Baptist Vianney, you were so adamant against sin, yet so sympathetic and so ready to welcome the sinner. I come to you today as if you were still alive, as if I were kneeling at your feet and you could hear me. Bend towards me, listen to the repentant confidence for my weaknesses and miserable deeds and those of priests.
Priest of the Lord, inexhaustible Confessor, obtain for me and for priests a horror for sin. You wanted us first to avoid the occasion of sin. I want to take your advice and make the resolution to break bad habits and to avoid the dangerous occasions of sin. I pray for our priests, that they too, might have this desire and make the same resolution. Help us today to examine our conscience.
Holy Priest of Ars, I have confidence in your intercession. I pray for our priests during this novena especially for … (mention silently your special intentions).
Ave Maris Stella
Hail, Star of the sea! Blessed Mother of God, yet ever a virgin! O
happy gate of heaven!
Thou that didst receive the Ave from Gabriel’s lips, confirm us in
peace, and so let Eva be changed into an Ave of blessing for us.
Loose the sinner’s chains, bring light to the blind, drive from us
our evils, and ask all good things for us.
Show thyself a mother, and offer our prayers to him, who would be
born of thee, when born for us.
O incomparable Virgin, and meekest of the meek, obtain us the
forgiveness of our sins, and make us meek and chaste.
Obtain us purity of life, and a safe pilgrimage; that we may be
united with thee in the blissful vision of Jesus.
Praise be to God the Father and to the Lord Jesus, and to the Holy
Spirit: to the Three one self-same praise. Amen.
Holy Mary, intercede for your priests.
St. Joseph, protect our priests.
St. Michael, defend our priests.
St John Vianney, Patron of Priests, pray for our priests.
O Holy Spirit, Soul of my soul, I adore Thee. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me. Establish my soul in Truth…O Holy Spirit come into my life through Mary. Renew and invigorate our priests. Sanctify all our priests.
