God our Father, we thank you for our religious leaders.
We thank you for the good news they preach to us.
Help them give a good example.
Give them words to preach.
Give them love to be shared.
Bless and protect our pope, cardinals, bishops, and priests.
We pray all this through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
