Thursdays of Adoration and Reparation for Priests

| | Comments (9)


Surely there are lay faithful and religious who will hear the call to make the Thursdays in Adoration and Reparation for Priests. Are you willing to commit yourself to one hour of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament every Thursday in intercession and reparation for priests? The hour may be made before the tabernacle or before the Blessed Sacrament exposed. Should it be impossible to make it before the Blessed Sacrament, one can, from any place, offer it in spirit before the tabernacle in the world where Our Lord is most forsaken, neglected, and forgotten.

I ask lay faithful and religious who want to commit themselves to make the Thursdays of Adoration and Reparation for Priests to send me a message to that effect, indicating the hour on Thursday when, as a rule, they will make their Hour.

Priests who desire to join me in this commitment are warmly invited to contact me for further information.

O my beloved Jesus,
I give and consecrate to Thee this Thursday and all the Thursdays of my life,
in praise of the adorable Mystery of Thy Body and Blood,
and in thanksgiving for that of the Priesthood.

Moved by Thy Holy Spirit,
and full of confidence in the help of Thy Most Holy Mother, the Virgin Mary,
Mother of Priests,
I resolve to live each Thursday for the rest of my days here below
in adoration and in reparation for priests
and, especially, for those who do not adore Thee,
for those who are most wounded in their souls,
and for those who are exposed to the attacks of the powers of darkness.
I want to remain before Thy Eucharistic Face for them and in their place;
I want to draw near, in their name, to Thy open Heart,
ever-flowing with the Blood and the Water that purify,
heal, and sanctify all souls,
but, first of all, those of Thy priests.

Let each Thursday find me close to the Sacrament of Thy Body and Blood,
in adoration and reparation for the sake of all Thy priests.
Make me an entirely Eucharistic soul,
according to the desires of Thy Sacred Heart
and the designs of Thy merciful goodness upon my life.
I desire nothing else.
I want to love Thee more each day;
I want to be the faithful adorer of Thy Eucharistic Face
and the consoling friend of Thy Sacred Heart
hidden in the tabernacles of the world,
where it beats, wounded by love, forgotten, forsaken,
and waiting for the adoration and for the love of even one priest.


Yes Father I will join you to the best of my abilities to do an hour of adoration on Thursdays. That is little enough to ask for. We must pray much for the Priest. For if the Shepard is stuck the sheep are scattered.

Due to my work schedule, I can't make adoration on Thursdays, but I do pray for priests at my Wednesday adoration hour, I offer up every work night in reparation for my sins, for my family, co-workers and for the sanctity of priests. On Thursdays I pray for priests using the Chalice of Strength booklet from Great prayers.

Sorry that should have read " when the Shepard is struck not stuck" not enough coffee this morning.
Becky that is a very good pray book. The Opus Angelorum is a great place for information on this work for Priests.

Dear Father, I will devote my Thursdays to adoration and reparation for priests. This I will do before the Blessed Sacrament, as I am able, at 10:00 pm.

I am so pleased that God has placed this request upon your heart, and that you are responding so generously. Jesus revealed to Sr. Mary Sainte-Pierre that reparation must be made before He would grant the grace of conversion to those souls who have offended Him so deeply, most especially his consecrated priests and religious. Her message of Reparation to the Holy Face was based on this necessity. His message to you seems a most fitting extension of this revelation, as were also the messages of Our Lady at La Salette and Fatima.

I thank God for your vocation, your response, and your communications to us, your needy flock, by way of this blog. May He and the Most Blessed Virgin continue to pour out his graces and blessings upon us through you His loyal servant. Most gratefully, Patricia

+Dear Father,

Egeria and I pledge ourselves to this hour of Adoration and reparation on Thursdays. Usually the hour will be from 9:45 AM to 10:45, but it could vary from week to week. We are especially drawn to adoration of the most Holy Eucharistic Face of Christ, His Pierced Heart, and to make reparation to the Holy Face. We also pray the chaplet of the Eucharistic Face and the chaplet of the Holy Face. We are grateful for your being faithful to the Spirit's leading.

Dear Fr. Mark, I'd like to share with you some information on religious congregations (one I'm associated with) from here (Canada) who also share this spirituality. Please contact me when you have in chance. In Jesus Priest, CA

Today as I was returning home I was reflecting on the need of priests and religious to make personal holiness their top priority. In times past one became a priest or religious first to save one's own soul and only then to work for the salvation of others. This has been forgotten. A diocese, order, or congregation cannot grow and prosper if it is not holy, and it cannot be holy if its members are not holy. Jesus told us we must "seek first the Kingdom of God." We must seek to be saints. Then all else will be given to us. We cannot expect holy priests or vocations unless we ourselves seek to become saints.

This work is of God.

Claude Auger, I would like to contact you, but I have no way to do so. Do you have an e-mail address? Thank you.

Dear Father Mark,
I pledge to offer a holy hour of Adoration and reparation for priests on Thursdays in our chapel at work from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, at my lunch hour and if that should not be possible I will defer it to 10:00pm to 11:00pm after Legion of Mary meeting.
There is so much wonderful inspiration on your blog.
Thank you Father
In Christ
