The nature, gender, and function of priests are apparently all up for discussion these days. I suspect people know where I stand and why. I do not wish to comment; all I can offer is the following prayer (taken from a Holy Card). I can only ask you to pray it.

O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, bless abundantly those whom you have called to share Thy Priesthood. You have chosen them apart to continue your work on earth. Daily they offer Holy Mass, they administer the sacraments, they preach, and in all their work they unite us to you. Grant that their conduct may be a pattern of holy living so that hereafter, giving a good account of the stewardship committed to them, they may obtain the reward of everlasting bliss. Amen
