PRAYER FOR PRIESTS.
Divine Saviour, Jesus Christ, who have entrusted your work of redemption to the priests, who take your place on earth. I offer you, through the hands of your most holy mother for the sanctification of your priests and future priests this whole day, all my prayers, works, joys, sacrifices and sufferings. Give us saintly priests. Grant to them apostolic hearts, filled with love for you and all the souls belonging to you, so that, being themselves sanctified in you, they may sanctify us who are entrusted to their care and bring us safely into heaven. Loving Jesus, bless all their prayers and words at the altar and in the confessional, in the pulpit, in the school and at the sickbed. Call many young men to the priesthood and monastic life. Protect and sanctify all who will become your priests. And grant to the souls of the priests who have departed this life, eternal rest. And to you, Mary, Mother of all priests, take them under your special protection and lead them ever to the highest priestly sanctity. Amen.

PAANO NABUO ANG KASALUKUYANG PARAAN NG PAGDARASAL NG ROSARYO?
Ang Debosyon ng Banal na Rosaryo ay nagsimula sa mga Monasteryo noong Ika 12 na siglo karaniwang dinarasal ng mga Salmo. Ngunit para sa mga Monghe na hindi nakakabasa ng mga Salmo, inihalili ang AMA NAMIN. Sa paglipas ng mga taon, isinama ang ABA GINOONG MARIA at ang LUWALHATI.
Pagdating ng ika-16 na siglo, ang 15 Misteryo ng Rosaryo ang lumaganap at kamakailan lang, iniutos ni San Juan Paulo II na isama sa Misteryo ng Rosaryo ang MISTERYO NG LIWANAG. Patuloy na lumago o yumabong ang pagdarasal ng rosaryo at sa paglago o pagyabong na ito, ISINAMA SA ROSARYO ANG ILANG DEVOTIONAL PRAYER O KARAGDAGANG PANALANGIN NA NAAAYON SA PANANAMPALATAYA AT SA TURO NG SIMBAHAN.
