Pray for Priests and Seminarians
To God be the glory.
We did not do our usual post in honour of St. Joseph on Wednesday, as we were engaged in praying for priests and seminarians- several in dire straits. As you know, this is a large part of our ministry, to intercede for priests and seminarians around the world.
Part of our prayer was the Rosary of Peace, by Fr. Slavko Barbaric of Medjugorje. The closing prayer he wrote is so appropriate for today's world situation:
"O Lord, heavenly Father, give us Your peace. We ask this of You together with all Your children in whom You have planted the desire for peace and appeasement. We ask this together with all those who, in unspeakable sufferings, are sighing for peace. And after this life which, for the best part of it after all, we have spent in restlessness, take us into the Kingdom of Your eternal peace and love. Accept also all those who have fallen as victims of wars and conflicts. Accept also those who are looking for peace on wrong paths. We ask this through Christ, the Prince of Peace, and through the intercession of our heavenly Mother, the Queen of Peace. Amen." (Pray with the Heart!, 73)
Our Lady of Medjugorje said on November 25, 2000 (the day after he died, going up Mt. Krizevac) that "your brother Slavko has been born into Heaven and intercedes for you." (link)
An onslaught against priests and religious sisters is happening in India!
We are not totally sure about the accuracy of the following documents, but they were forwarded to us by a priest in India. Upwards of 168 priests, as well as 116 religious sisters, have died from this "new wave" of 'COVID-19' (perhaps it isn't COVID at all...)
Let us pray with St. Teresa of Calcutta, India's missionary, for priests and religious around the world, our front line soldiers:
