Priest's Prayer After Hearing Confessions
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, receive this performance of my ministry with that surpassing love with which Thou didst absolve blessed Mary Magdalene and all sinners flying to Thee. Whatever in the administration of this Sacrament I may have performed negligently and unworthily, do Thou deign to supply and satisfy. I recommend to Thy most Sacred Heart all and each who have now confessed to me, asking Thee to guard them from relapse. After the misery of this life lead them with me into the joys of eternal life. Amen.
