St. Therese on Mary, Priests and the Eucharist

The following is a prayer St. Therese instructed her novices to recite every day for priests. It was written by Therese Durnerin.  (Praying for Priests by Maureen O'Riordan).

"Oh!  Give us priests!  Priests filled with the fire of true children of Mary, who will give Jesus to souls with the same tenderness and care with which you carried the little Child of Bethlehem in your arms!  In the Host, oh Mother, your Jesus is even poorer than in the crib!  He no longer has hands as tender as yours to touch Him...Give Him a generation of priests formed in your school, in the tenderness of your virginal love."

Our priests in Philadelphia are still reeling.  Please continue to remember them in your prayers.
