O Holy Priest of Ars, whose only comfort in this world was the real presence of Jesus in the tabernacle, was it not your great joy to distribute the Eucharist to the pilgrims who visited you? You refused Communion to the souls who refused to reform, but to souls of goodwill you opened wide the doors of the Eucharistic Feast.
You, who each day at Holy Mass received Holy Communion with great love, give our priests your fervor. With freedom from mortal sin, obtain for them a sincere desire to profit from receiving Holy Communion and a deep love for You present in the Holy Sacrament that inspires those who celebrate Mass with them.
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).
Read Chapter 14 of the Gospel of John and then pray:
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.
