Confraternity of Spiritual Mothers for Priests

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ:  

Today on the Feast of St. Padre Pio, I heard from my spiritual director giving me the green light to present the "project" I mentioned several months ago. It is called:

CONFRATERNITY OF SPIRITUAL MOTHERS FOR PRIESTS!

Continue to read below for more details!
God Bless all of you!

Love in the Two Hearts, 
Sadie

Several Years ago, I read a letter 
from the CONGREGATION OF THE FAITH
that was written by a Cardinal Huume, appealing to bishops to organize Eucharistic Adoration for priests; for an increase in vocations; and for their sanctification, so that they might remain fervent, faithful, and holy.

Along with that letter were several stories of different women who had, for the Glory of God and Exaltation of Holy Mother Church, contributed to the church by offering their daily lives to God for the priesthood and for priests.

I am sure that this is not the first time an appeal for prayers for priests has been made, or that others before me have not been inspired to do the same thing.  In the course of my ministry I have come across many apostolates; missions; organizations etc. that include praying for priests in their mission statement.  

So as the readers of my newsletters, I am appealing to all; married, single, religious, consecrated laity, widowed, divorced, whatever state of life you are, won't you offer one hour a month before the Blessed Sacrament for priests? 

Commit to pray at least one hour before the Blessed Sacrament once a month for this intention.  Of course the promise is not binding as for religious orders, but if one commits then I would pray that every effort would be made to fulfill it.  The commitment is for one hour a month before the Blessed Sacrament, however praying daily in your own little prayer corners would be rising to heroic degree!

 I am praying that you will understand, by reading the stories of these women how the ordinary things done in your daily lives CAN make a difference.  You can read the stories of these women  on the website that has been created for this confraternity by clicking on the link below.

The key is to apply St. Therese the Little Flower's "little way" and offer everything with LOVE,  to God and Our Lady, because united under the banner of the Confraternity, the Father in heaven will bless us with more priests; holy priests, vocations and renewed religious orders.  

This does not exclude the Godly men out there...they too can participate as we, male and female,  make up the Body of Christ, and since Jesus is the bridegroom, we are the bride of Christ...thus including all, regardless of gender.

Please submit your request to enroll in the confraternity at the new email address below: 

You can go to the website by clicking on the link below,  to read the stories of the saintly women, and the letter from the Congregation of the Faith:

Once enrolled, you will be remembered in prayer and your names will be added to the book of members that I will begin to keep.

I am including here and on the website the prayers that I pray we will all use, so there will be the unity for this lofty mission.  

With great love and joy, I pray we will, in our little way, make a difference to the priesthood and for the priests, GLORY TO GOD!  I humbly ask you all to please pray for this intention too.

Love and God Bless you!
Sadie 

PS: The pamphlets with the prayers to use are in the process of being printed and they are not quite ready, but as soon as I have them I will send them out if you provide your mailing address.  

Prayers for Priests + 

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent 
priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid 
priests; for Your priests labouring at home 
or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your 
tempted priests; for Your lonely and 
desolate priest; for Your young priests; for 
Your dying priests; for the souls of Your 
priests in purgatory. But above all I 
recommend to You the priests dearest to 
me; the priest who baptized me; the priests 
who absolved me from my sins; the priests 
at whose Masses I assisted and who gave 
me Your Body and Blood in Holy 
communion; the priests who taught and 
instructed me; all the priests to whom I am 
indebted in any other way. O Jesus, keep 
them all close to Your heart, and bless them 
abundantly in time and in eternity. 
Amen. 
O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep your priests within 
the shelter of your Sacred Heart, where none 
may touch them. 
Keep unstained their anointed hands, which 
daily touch your Sacred Body. 
Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with 
your Precious Blood. 
Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed 
with the sublime mark of the priesthood. 
Let your holy love surround them from the 
world's contagion. 
Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may 
the souls to whom they minister be their joy and 
consolation here and their everlasting crown 
hereafter. 
Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us: obtain 
for us numerous and holy priests.

Thy own most Precious Blood adorns Thee, Jesus.
This "garment" I desire - Oh, make it mine!
Immerse me in Thy overflowing Chalice
That I find raiment, too, in Love's Pure Wine.
Thou art Thyself the one Eternal High
Priest, And yet thy boundless Goodness doth
impart To many souls a Sacerdotal calling,
To offer LOVE to LOVE with LOVE'S own Heart!
For such as these accept my life's oblation-
I daily pray their number be increased, And beg for each already consecrated, The grace to live and die a Holy Priest. If Thy anointed ones have this misfortune, That from their sacred calling they depart, Accept my life's atonement, humbly
offered
And lead them back, Good Shepherd to

Thy Heart.  

 

 

 
PRAYER FOR PRIESTS 

"O priest, say this mass as 
if it were your first Mass, 
Say this Mass as if it were 
your last mass, Say this 
Mass as if it were your 
only Mass."

"...I want souls who are dedicated with fervor, with determination and without looking for rest, to plead day and night for My priests." ~ Jesus to Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida ~

 

 

"Make Reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My Apostles, when they did not WATCH ONE HOUR WITH ME." ~ Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque ~
