Pray for Fr. Pat
Pray for Fr. Pat having the wisdom and revelation of the Holy Spirit for his next chapter.
Gracious and loving God, we thank your for the gift of our priests.
Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments.
Help our priests to be strong in their vocation.
Set their souls on fire with love for your people.
Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.
Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom.
Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel.
Allow them to experience joy in their ministry.
Help them to become instruments of your divine grace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.
Many prayers of thanksgiving for Fr. Pat's "yes" to the priesthood. May Mary, Star of the Sea, always be his guiding light as he moves on to the next adventure.
