Prayer to Our Lady of the Tears for Priests

This prayer was found in a list of 100 prayers.

O Blessed Lady of the Tears,
we entrust and consecrate the priesthood
to your Immaculate Heart!

During this time of trial and suffering,
we pray that you renew the priesthood
by making priests holy
in imitation of the Heart of the Good Shepherd.

We pray in reparation for the sins of the priesthood
and we pray for all victims of their sins.

Grant, O Lady of the Tears,
an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the priests
that they may be authentic witnesses
of your Son
Jesus Christ Our Lord.

May we wipe away your tears
by comforting your Immaculate Heart,
by praying the rosary
and adoring the Heart of Jesus your Son
in the Most Holy Eucharist
present in every Catholic Church in the world.

Give all priests and seminarians
a deep love and devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist
and to you, their loving Mother.

Grant that every priest and seminarian
will daily spend one hour with Jesus in the Eucharist
and daily pray your most holy rosary!

Grant all priests and seminarians
the gift of purity,
the gift of chastity,
and the gift of the divine love of your Son.

May they proclaim the truth
without fear, with love, and with courage!

We ask all our prayers
through the Tears which you shed
at the foot of the Cross of Jesus Christ your Son
who lives and reigns
with the Father and the Holy Spirit.


Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us to respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
