43165 have prayed

That priests, through the modesty and humility of their lives, commit themselves actively to a solidarity with those who are most poor.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, Good Shepherd,
you call priests to be in the world and in the Church
signs of your presence, of your charity and of your forgiveness.
We ask that priests feel supported
with our friendship and prayer.
Let each priest feel more and more passionate about you
and for your mode of life among poor and at the service of the littlest ones.
Help priests who live in great difficulty
so that their hearts are more and more similar to your Heart.
Our Father…
Offering Prayer
Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the Heart of your Son Jesus,
that is given for me and that comes to me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit
make me your friend and apostle, available to your mission.
I put in your hands
my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings,
everything that I am and have,
in communion with my brothers and sisters of this worldwide prayer network.
With Mary I offer you my journey for the mission of the Church
and for the intentions of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network for this month. Amen.

Proposals for the month

  • Serve the parish priest or priest responsible for your community, giving the necessary support to any missionary efforts, especially in serving the poor and most vulnerable.
  • Promote in your community a meeting between laity and priests to reflect and learn about the current demands of the vocation and priestly service.
  • Promote in your community a moment of prayer focused on the Heart of Jesus, motivating those present to be enthusiastic about following Jesus, poor and humble. You can use the Way of the Heart, the official pathway of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network.
