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.

ANO ANG KAHULUGAN NG KASABIHANG “THE FAMILY THAT PRAYS TOGETHER, STAYS TOGETHER”?
Likas sa mag-anak ng pilipino ang gumawa ng sama-sama at nagkakaisa kung kaya naging kaugalian na ng pamilyang pilipino ang magdarasal ng sama-sama at nagkakaisa. Ito’y isang napakagandang kaugalian na nararapat na ipagpatuloy.
Sa pamamagitan ng nagkakaisang pananalangin, nagkakaroon ng pagkakataon ang pamilya na maging isa sa ngalan ng diyos. Sa nagkakaisang pananalangin ay napapalalim ang pananampalataya at pagmamahal sa diyos kasabay ng paglalim ng pananampalataya at pagmamahal sa diyos ang pagpapatibay ng pagmamahal at pagiging tapat sa isa’t-isa.
