We pray to you St. Joseph, Terror of Demons, to guide and strengthen our priests that they may model your fidelity.
In their uncertainty let them be attentive to Our Lord for guidance as he was to you as a child, and when an adult as you were to him.
Let our priests teach and lead us with as confident a heart as yours.
Let our priests hold as lovingly in their hands the body of Jesus, as you had done with the Holy Child.
And in their final hour let them too look, as you did, into the eyes of Jesus and Mary and know peace as they enter into eternity.
We ask all this in Jesus name.
