Novena for the Anniversary of Priestly Ordination –
Dear Lord Jesus, You have given us a holy priest in Father Paul. We are grateful for the many blessings of this good man who brings us Your holy sacraments of salvation.
Father Paul’s hands and prayers bring us Your saving grace in the waters of baptism, Your infinite mercy in forgiving our sins and Your sustaining and saving grace in the most Holy Eucharist. We pray that he will have a long life with which to bless Your Church and a happy death as he is ushered into Your eternal bliss.
Just as Father Paul is there to anoint the dying, grant that he will receive the same grace at his death. We beg You, Jesus, that this holy priest will be protected from all spiritual and temporal attacks and that his fidelity to the Church and his faith in You will endure, unwavering, until the end.
Father in heaven, bless and multiply Father Paul’s ministry so that Your Church will multiply for Your glory and for our salvation. Please shower this priest with your blessings every day. We praise and thank You, most Holy God, for the gift of Father Paul! We thank You for his years of service and ask You to bless us with many more years with our beloved priest.
