Daily Prayer for a Seminarian
Until his Ordination to the Priesthood

(Used by the Curé D'Ars Prayer Group Members)

O Jesus, Eternal High Priest,
I offer You through Your Immaculate Mother Mary,
Your own Precious Blood, in all the Masses throughout the world, as petition for graces for all seminarians, Your future priests, especially for......

Give them humility, meekness, prudence, and a burning zeal for souls. Fill their hearts with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Teach them to know and love the church, that they may always and everywhere speak, act, and think with her, the glorious spouse of Christ.

Teach them generosity and detachment from wordly goods; but above all, teach them to know You and to love the One and Only Eternal Priest. Good Shepherd of Souls, hear this my prayer for saintly priests.

Daily Prayer for a Seminarian
Until his Ordination to the Priesthood

God our Father,
You have chosen Your Son, Jesus Christ,
to reveal Yourself to us.

You have chosen Your Church to show us Your love through Him.
You have chosen ___________, your son,
to be a priest as a sign of that love to Your people.

We pray that the Holy Spirit continue to fill him with Your peace and joy as he prepares for the holy priesthood.

We pray that through his priesthood he may proclaim the wonder of Your faithfulness and love to all through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Prayer for Seminarians
(Used as the Diocesean Prayer for Vocation)

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, I pray that You call many worthy souls to Your holy priesthood.

Enlighten the Bishop in the choice of candidates, the Spiritual Director in molding them, and the professors in instructing them.

Lead the seminarians daily in Your unerring footsteps; so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom and heroes of sacrifice;
steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man; apostles of Your glory and sanctifiers of souls.

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us.

Saint Charles Borromeo, pray for our seminarians.
