The Society of St. Pius X, a work of the Church founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre to preserve and transmit the Catholic priesthood, gives thanks to God and beseeches the Divine Master to send workers to His harvest:
O Lord, grant us priests!
O Lord, grant us holy priests!
O Lord, grant us many holy priests!
