Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings,
you have power over life and death.
You know even things that are hidden or obscure.
And our very thoughts and feelings are open to you.
Cleanse our priests from secret faults,
when they did wrong and you saw it.
You know how weak they are,
both in soul and in body.
Give them strength, O Lord,
in their frailty
and sustain them in their sufferings.
Grant them a prudent judgement, dear Lord,
and let them always be mindful of your blessings.
Let them retain until the end your grace
that has protected them till now.
