"Almighty & most merciful God, you caused fresh water to flow from a rock rock to aid your thirsting people. Draw from our stony hearts tears of sorrow for our sins, so that we may be worthy of your mercy & pardon. Through Jesus Christ." (Prayer for the Gift of Tears/1962 Roman Missal: Votive Mass to Seek Sorrow of Heart)
Lord, grant us many and holy priests. Grant us holy priests to console those who suffer, to remind all that we are brothers, to bless our homes, our work, our fields so that your kingdom may extend to all souls. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, grant your Church many and holy priests. Queen of the Apostles, pray for us. Amen.
