Dear Jesus , right before your Ascension into heaven you told your apostles to be His witnesses to the ends of the earth upon receiving the Holy Spirit.
We pray for our priests to be similarly inspired and strengthened to spread your Gospel message in a world in need. May our priests do so joyfully and with sincere dedication, with your guidance and your grace. In remembering your ascension, help them to seek what is above, so as to teach and guide us here below. We ask all this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
