Prayer for Priests in the Rosary

One Minute Meditation


John Cardinal Carberry


Dear Jesus, how can we ever properly thank You for our priests?  They have given up everything for us, forsaking the world to nourish our souls with the Eucharist and to heal our wounds through holy confession

End forth Your Holy Spirit right now, in a flood-nay-a supernatural torrent of grace in swift and sure answer to this plea, bringing consolations and courage and purity and joy to our beloved priests. As only You can do, whisper into their hearts that we love them so.  As only You can do, enwrap each man wearing a cassock and collar (and habit)  in the loving maternal arms of Your Mother who wept with You and stayed with You during Your hours of suffering during Your crucifixion.

We ask this in Your Holy Name, the Name above all names:  Jesus!  Amen.


Prayer for Priests to be said after every decade of the rosary , after the Fatima prayer:

God, our Father, please send us holy priests, all for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, all for the sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, all in union with Saint Joseph.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.

    Could you please tell me where the prayer, “God our Father, please send us holy priests, all for the sacred Eucharistic heart of Jesus, all for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with St. Joseph”, came from. What is it’s origin. Who gave it to us?

    Thank you,

    I too have been trying to find the origin of this prayer for priests. Does anyone know?

  • I would like to know of it’s origin. I first heard it at Conyers, Ga.around 1994. They prayed it at the end of each decade of the Rosary. Then we prayed it during the Marian Movement of Priests Rosary. Recently it has been dropped by most prayer groups.
