The Conversion of St. Paul
Novena for Priests, Day 2
Dear Family of Mary!

Today we await the message through Marija. I will send it out when I receive it. And we also pray Day 2 of the Novena for Priests:

Day Two - Novena for Priests   
"Dear children, ...Again I am warning you, pray for those whom my Son called, whose hands He blessed and whom He gave as a gift to you. Pray, pray, pray for your shepherds. Thank you." (April 02, 2013)

Sr. Briege McKenna writes:

I felt the Lord telling me, "I want you to go into the world to tell my people that the priesthood is their gift, so they may be fed and strengthened. I want you to call them to intercede, to love my priests, to reverence this sacrament. When my people love, reverence, and are grateful for the priesthood, priestly vocations will flourish in the their midst. It will be a joy for young men to say yes to this call because they will be supported by their communities and by their families."
(Sr. Briege McKenna. "Miracles Do Happen" p. 73)

Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord. Keep them, for they are Thine,
The priests whose lives burn out before Thy consecrated shrine.
Keep them, for they are in the world though from the world apart.
When earthly treasures tempt, allure - Shelter them in Thy heart.
Keep them and comfort them in hours of loneliness and pain,
when all their life of sacrifice for souls seems but in vain.
Keep them and remember Lord, they have no one but Thee.
They have only human hearts, with human frailty.
Keep them as spotless as the Host, that daily they caress;
they every thought and word and deed, deign, dearest Lord, to bless.

Thank you, Jesus, for our priests. May we recognize that they are Your gift to us, Your provision for our salvation. Without them, we would not be sustained in our journey to heaven.

God bless you and keep you in Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
