On this GivingTuesday (December 1st), St. Patrick's Seminary & University asks you to pray to Our Lady for our Catholic priests who dedicate their lives to serve the people of God with the pastoral charity of Christ:

O Mother of Jesus Christ,
you were with Him at the beginning of His life and of His mission,
you sought the Master among the crowd,
you stood beside Him when He was lifted up from the earth
consumed as the one eternal sacrifice,
and you had John close by you, your son;
accept from the beginning those who have been called,
protect their growth, accompany your sons in their life and in their ministry,
O Mother of Priests. – St. Pope John Paul II
