Sunday Holy Hour
for Priests

Sunday June 20, 2010
Our Lady of the Roses,
Mary Help of Mothers Shrine
9:30 - 11 a.m.
(time change for this Sunday only)



          O my God, poor, weak and miserable as I am, I have come to spend this hour alone with You, in reparation for the priests who have forgotten that they are Your chosen souls. Especially, dear God, do I offer this holy hour for the priests who at this moment need it most. In praying for consecrated souls, help me to remember my own utter weakness, misery and nothingness. Were it not for Your grace I would be far worse than those for whom I pray.

          O my God, help those priests who are faithful to remain faithful. To those who are falling, stretch forth Your divine hand that they may grasp it as their support. And for those poor unfortunate souls who have fallen, lift them up in the great ocean of Your mercy, that being engulfed therein, they may receive the grace to return to Your great loving heart. Amen.


Darryl Bolisay, LOSM, leading the Sorrowful Mysteries

"The prayers that you have conducted for the priesthood on the Sundays of your years upon earth shall be counted at the time when all of you shall go over the veil. Then you will rejoice with all Heaven for the number of priestly souls that you have brought back to the fold."

Our Lady, September 27, 1986


Fr. McCreedy leading the litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
