Do you love priests?
Do you want to help in their sanctification?
Do you love to pray the Rosary and honor Mary, Mother of Priests?
Do you want to please the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
If so, you are in luck. June, the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the month we celebrate the awesome Solemnity of Corpus Christi also is a month with a special event: the 13th Annual World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests, a day promoted and approved by Saint John Paul II. During this day, a twenty-four hour Rosary Relay is prayed across the globe for the intentions of priests.
We, as Handmaids of the Precious Blood, have participated from our cloister taking particular interest in aligning each of our hours of Eucharistic Adoration with whatever location in a particular time zone across the globe happened to be praying at that specific hour. In this way, we united ourselves in prayer to the many thousands praying the Rosary for priests each moment of the relay. This year will be no exception. While one Handmaid fulfills her duties packing moving boxes in anticipation for our upcoming move shortly, another will fulfill a far more important duty in kneeling before Our Lord exposed in the Monstrance and asking for grace and holiness for all priests, especially the troubled.
Please join us as we join the many souls around the world in this wonderful and inspiring event for priests.
