On Ember Saturday
7. In the Ember Weeks, to be said every day, for them that are to be admitted into Holy Orders.
Let us pray for them that are to be admitted into Holy Orders.
V. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness
R. And let thy saints sing with joyfulness.
ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, who hast purchased to thyself an universal Church by the precious blood of thy dear Son: Mercifully hook upon the same, and at this time so guide and govern the minds of thy servants the Bishops and Pastors of thy flock, that they may lay hands suddenly on no man, but faithfully and wisely make. choice of fit persons to serve in the sacred ministry of thy Church. And to those which shall be ordained to any holy function give thy grace and heavenly benediction; that both by their life and doctrine they may set forth thy glory, and set forward the salvation of all men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
