By Dana and Fr. Kevin Scallon, C.M.
For nearly 30 years, hundreds of priests have met in Dublin, Ireland at the Intercession For Priests to pray for the protection and holiness of the priesthood. We believe that many men have been saved to the priesthood, and have received many graces because of the Intercession For Priests. In this rosary, we contemplate Jesus our Eternal High Priest, and with Mary the Mother of the Church we pray for all priests. May this Rosary of Intercession for Priests help many who love this precious ministry to be part of the intercession by praying for the bishops, priests, and deacons of the Church.
In this Rosary, we meditate on five special mysteries of the Rosary, written especially for this intercession:
First Mystery: Jesus the Eternal High Priest
Second Mystery: The Paschal Mystery and the Priesthood of Jesus
Third Mystery: The Priesthood of Jesus in the Church
Fourth Mystery: Jesus - Priest and Shepherd
Fifth Mystery: Jesus Christ - Priest and Sacrament
The words "Criost Linn", sung by Dana, are Gaelic for "Christ with us".
