Thomas Aquinas Novena, Day Four: Priest

Opening Prayer

Glory Be

Scripture

Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness; and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people. (Hebrews 5:1-3)

Intercession

God of all Grace, as Thomas served the Church as a priest, direct my prayers as intercessions for others, and help me seek and find your overflowing grace.

Concluding Prayer

Grant me, O Lord my God,
a mind to know you,
a heart to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
conduct pleasing to you,
faithful perseverance in waiting for you,
and a hope of finally embracing you.
