The Way of Divine Love

"Our mission as Christians is to conform ourselves evermore 
to Jesus as the model of our lives."  - Pope Francis

The Blessed Sacrament is the invention of love. 
It is life and fortitude for souls, a remedy for every fault,
and a viaticum for the last passage from time and eternity. 

In it sinners recover life for their souls;
tepid souls, true warmth;
 fervent souls, tranquility and satisfaction of every longing
saintly souls, wings to fly towards perfection
pure souls, sweet honey and rarest sustenance."

The Way Of Divine Love, Words Of Our Lord To Sr. Josefa Menendez

ORDAINED to the Holy Priesthood of Jesus Christ

Oh, day of Love Divine, all loves excelling!
An Old German saying:
It is worth wearing out a pair of shoes to walk
to receive a priest's First Blessing!

Let us hold them in prayer and offer thanksgiving for each  'YES'!


Lord Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest,
You offered Yourself to the Father on the Cross
And through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit
Gave Your priestly people a share in Your redeeming sacrifice.
Hear our prayer for the sanctification of our priests.
Grant that all who are ordained to the ministerial priesthood
May be ever more conformed to you, the divine Master.

May they preach the Gospel with pure heart and clear conscience.
Let them be shepherds according to Your own Heart,
Single-minded in service to you and to the Church
And shining examples of a holy, simple and joyful life.
Through the prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Your Mother and ours.
Draw all priests and the flocks entrusted to their care to the fullness of eternal life,
Where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever, Amen.

Pope Benedict XVI wrote this prayer specifically for World Priest (2011)
