Here’s the best prayer for priests that I have come across.  Please pray for all priests every day as satan attacks them constantly.  The Church and the world have such desperate need for holy, orthodox priests.  The crisis in the Faith will not end until we have them.

O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep all Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may harm them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands which daily touch Thy Sacred Body.  Keep unsullied their lips purpled with Thy Precious Blood.  Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime marks of Thy glorious priesthood.

Let Thy holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion.

Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls t whom they have ministered be here below their joy and consolation and in Heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown.  Amen.

O Mary, Queen of the clergy, pray for us; obtain for us a number of holy priests.

Regarding the St. Andrew (Christmas) Novena that starts on  Friday, Nov. 30:
(written by Shirley, member of the Confraternity of The Holy Face,  who prays the novena every year)
Dearest Ones,   I am sending all  of you this prayer which has been very significant in our lives over the past  five years.  It is most beautiful.  The more you recite it the more  you are able to reflect on its purity.   The power of this  prayer is second only to the Golden Arrow prayer.  Every intention for that  particular year is answered–the miracle occurs within 30 days or two years, in  our experience.  I have become quite close to St Andrew through this  prayer.  He was the older brother to St Peter and was the first to  encounter Jesus (age 30) on the streets.  He excitedly told his  brother and others that he had indeed encountered the Messiah.   I do  not like to send or receive emails which imply, say this prayer, and magic will  occur.  We should always be praying.  This prayer is a beautiful way  to deepen our Advent and Christmas experience.  St Andrew who was the first  to recognize Jesus’s sacred face will intercede with our intention.  Our  one intention should be specific NOT general.  So think carefully  about it  If you forget one day to recite the prayer, make it up the next  day.   from Josephine: “Personally, I have never been disappointed and have found this  Novena to be truly miraculous!”

    Immaculate Conception Novena – start Nov.  29
*This novena begins 9 days before the feast of the Immaculate  Conception*
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is an important day for  us to reflect on Mary’s life.
It is important for us to strive to imitate Mary as the ideal  example of the Christian life lived for God.
Novena Prayers for the Immaculate Conception
O most pure Virgin Mary conceived without sin, from the very  first instant, you were entirely immaculate. O glorious Mary full of grace, you  are the mother of my God – the Queen of Angels and of men. I humbly venerate you  as the chosen mother of my Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords chose you for the  singular grace and honor of being His beloved mother. By the power of His Cross,  He preserved you from all sin. Therefore, by His power and love, I have hope and  bold confidence in your prayers for my holiness and salvation.
I pray first of all that you would make me worthy to call you  my mother and your Son, Jesus, my Lord.
I pray that your prayers will bring me to imitate your  holiness and submission to Jesus and the Divine Will.
Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are  you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother  of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Now, Queen of Heaven, I beg you to beg my Savior to grant me  these requests…
(Mention your  intentions)
My holy Mother, I know that you were obedient to the will of  God. In making this petition, I know that God’s will is more perfect than mine.  So, grant that I may receive God’s grace with humility like you.
As my final request, I ask that you pray for me to increase in  faith in our risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in hope in our  risen Lord; I ask that you pray for me to increase in love for the risen  Jesus!
Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are  you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother  of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.
