PRAYER SAINT GABRIEL OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS, PATRON OF THE CLERGY (PRIESTS)

Dear Saint Gabriel,
your very name recalls your particular devotion to Christ,
the Man of Sorrows,
and to Mary, his Afflicted Mother.
You died young as a Passionist religious
but left to us all an example of a life of Christlike sacrifice.
Intercede for our seminarians and young religious,
who are in desperate need
of your patronage amid today’s sensual and selfish world.

Amen.
