Pray for the Souls of Priests

Please pray for the souls of deceased priests especially in the next week to come following All Souls Day. This is the Year for Priests, and what's a better time to pray for deceased priests than right now!?! :)

O God, Thou didst raise Thy servants to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ, according to the Order of Melchisedech, giving them the sublime power to offer the Eternal Sacrifice, to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar, and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name. We beseech Thee to reward their faithfulness and to forgive their faults, admitting them speedily into Thy Holy Presence, there to enjoy forever the recompense of their labors. This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

For Fr. Charles O Neill, for Fr. Mike Bell, for Msgr. Burkhardt, for Bishop Ken Untner, for Bishop Francis Reh.
Grant eternal rest unto them, O Lord, and may the souls of these faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen.
