Novena of Prayer for Priestly Ordination PDF Print E-mail

Jesus Christ our LordDear Friends,

In order to prepare our hearts for the ordination to the priesthood of our two first Filipino Assumptionist brothers, Ricky and Alex, on November 12, our communities start today a Novena to the Holy Spirit.

We would be grateful if you could join us in this Novena so that the Holy Spirit inspire and support them in their new ministry.

Superior, Philippine Delegation

Novena of Prayer for Priestly Ordination

God our Father,
you appointed Jesus Christ High Priest of the new and eternal covenant.
By grace you allow men to share in this priesthood and in his saving work.

We ask you to pour out your Holy Spirit on our brothers, Ricky and Alex, whom you have chosen for priesthood.
May they preach the Gospel worthily and wisely, celebrate the sacraments faithfully and reverently, and pray without ceasing. May they be united more closely every day to Christ the High Priest, who offered himself for us to the Father as a pure sacrifice.

Bless, sanctify, and consecrate the men whom you have chosen and called to the sacred order of Priesthood. Through the Holy Spirit make their lives worthy of the mysteries they celebrate.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Priest and Lord.
