Thursday Adorers

| | Comments (11)


Among the very first people to commit themselves to an hour of adoration every Thursday in thanksgiving for the Gift and Mystery of the Most Holy Eucharist and of the Priesthood, and in reparation for priests who do not adore Our Lord in the Sacrament of His Love, was none other than my own Dad! Thank you, Dad! Others have responded too, some by posting a comment, and others by sending me an e-mail. One other priest has responded so far.

Concerning this work of adoration and reparation, Our Lord deigned to say to one of His priests:

Respond to my call, just as you are doing today, and I will do all the rest. I am the Friend who never fails, the Friend whose love is a rock of stability and a refuge. I am the Friend whom you have always sought. Now, I have called you to live in the radiance of my Face and to remain close to my Eucharistic Heart. Do this, trusting in my promises, and many priests will be rescued from the plots laid for them by the Evil One. Many will discover that they too are loved, that my Eucharistic Face shines upon them, that my Heart is open to receive them, and that my Mother is their Mother too, their life, their sweetness, and their hope. Your very presence here, in obedience to the call you heard, obtains many graces for my priests. For this have I called you to live in adoration and in reparation.


+Dear Father,
To whom was Our Lord addressing these beautiful words? They seem so especially meant for you that I wonder... United in Him,

(I am moving this question from its late addition to an earlier post, just in case it was being missed.)

Fr. Mark: I know that several of Vandeur's books were translated into English. My French is poor (nonexistent). What would be the English title of Vandeur's book?

fr mark:

do you read spanish?
I need to share a special blessing with you.
could you write me a email
allowing me to share my blessing with you?


fr mark:

god bless you dad!!


Dear Fr. Mark,
Yes, I will spend an hour of adoration on Thursdays before our Eucharistic Lord.

Praise be Jesus Christ! The hour of adoration will be between 5 and 6 am.

For Fr. Bittle:

Fr. Vandeur's book was published in English under the title "The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass: Ladder of Sanctity".

Bless you Fr. Mark. I will willingly and gladly offer and hour of adoration each Thursday for our priests here in Indianapolis and around the world. My hour will be from 7 to 8 pm. God bless you and your work.

How faithful is Our God and his Mercy endureth forever. He has sent His Face before us, and how beautiful It is. It is full of Love, Mercy, Strength and Compassion. It is the Face of Our Creator, our Author.

He has given us nothing but good, and what have we given Him in return. Let us constantly make reparation, and return Love, Love, Love for Love, Love, Love.

Thank you Father for giving to us the beautiful Word of God.

Thank you God for the wonderful gift of the Catholic Faith and priests after Your own Heart.


+Dear Father,
Just wanted to send our greetings, love and prayer for this anniversary day, not knowing when you will see this comment. The Holy Spirit is leading us by little steps. Continue to keep us in your prayers as we pray for you daily. Egeria also sends greetings.

Good Afternoon,

Thinking of you and your anniversary of priesthood. I hope all is well. You remain in my thought and prayer.

Bless, my friend.
