Our holy priests and religious (and perhaps especially those who aren't so holy but
to be better) need our prayers as never before. They are prime targets for Satan's attacks because they can be his greatest adversaries. Let us offer our prayers, Masses, our sufferings and our time in Adoration for them--- asking that the Lord endow them with His strength, power and light.
From the Second Day of the Divine Mercy Novena:
"Today bring to Me the souls of priests and religious,
and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy.
It was they who gave Me the strength to endure My bitter Passion.
Through them, as through channels,
My mercy flows out upon mankind."
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze
upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard –
upon the souls of priests and religious;
and endow them with the
of Your blessing.
For the love of the Heart of your Son in which they are enfolded,
impart to them Your
that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation,
