A Prayer for Priests

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Ave Maria Meditations

SUGGESTED DAILY PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

Lord Jesus, You have chosen Your priests from among us and sent them out to proclaim Your word and act in Your name. For so great a gift to Your Church, we give You praise and thanksgiving. We ask You to fill them with the fire of Your love, that their ministry may reveal Your presence in the Church.

Since they are earthen vessels, we pray that Your power shine out through their weakness. In their afflictions let them never be crushed; in their doubts, never despair; in temptation, never be destroyed; in persecution, never  abandoned. Inspire them through prayer to live each day the mystery of Your   dying and rising. In times of weakness, send Your Spirit, and help them to praise Your Heavenly Father and pray for the poor sinners.

By the same Holy Spirit put Your word on their lips and Your love in their hearts, to bring good news to the poor and healing to the broken-hearted. And may the gift of Mary, Your Mother, to the disciple whom You loved, be Your gift to every priest. Grant that she who formed You in her human image, may form them in Your Divine Image, by the power of Your Spirit, to the glory of God the Father. Amen.

News – New Novel – After the Fall

Ave Maria!

Here is a new novel highly recommended by Fr. Peter Fehlner, centering on Catholic spirituality, written by Clara Fleischmann who also compiled a prayer book, “The Three Crowns: The Seven Joys, the Seven Sorrows, and the Seven Glories of Mary”, which will soon be published by the Academy of the Immaculate, the FI’s publishing house.

 Available at Amazon  Take a peak inside

From the back cover:

“Enjoyed it very much from beginning to end!” – Father Peter Damian Fehlner, F.I., S.T.D.

To whom has our redemption been entrusted? Who is the focal point of our lives? Who is Heaven’s Gate? Father John Lang is as clear on the answer now as when he first took on the difficult mission of St. Botvid’s Catholic Church in Botby, a small village in Gotland-a part of former Sweden. Maria Högernäs, a young parishioner, senses that the political atmosphere is thickening. She perceives keenly the tensions of war. (more…)

Adoro Te Devote

Ave Maria Meditations

O hidden God, I adore Thee.

O silent God, I adore Thee.

O God, faithful and constant, I adore Thee.

O God held lightly in the hands of Thy priests,
I adore Thee.

I adore Thee.

I adore Thee. (more…)
