you both saved and served the Word of God,
and the Living Bread come down from heaven.
Look down upon the priests of the Church,
which had its origins in the household
over which you presided,
and pray for them
that they, too, serve perseveringly
the people entrusted to their care.
May priests teach the people faithfully the Word of God,
and break for them daily the Bread of Life.
May they strengthen them in faith and in hope,
console them in hardship and disappointment;
and pray to your Jesus
to crown their service of him on earth
with eternal life with him
in the happiness of heaven for ever.
