Please keep them in your prayers as they mark this milestone in their journey to the priesthood.
“Lord Jesus Christ, I pray that you protect and watch over all the seminarians of the Companions of the Cross. Grant them the grace to choose to follow you absolutely, love their brothers, and faithfully serve your people. Kindle in their hearts a fire for evangelization, and a total openness to your Holy Spirit. May they yearn to be in your Eucharistic presence, have a sincere devotion to your mother Mary, and steadfast loyalty to your Church. Give them the desire to pick up their cross daily for the greater glory of God. Amen.”
