Feast of the Seven Dolors of Our Lady

On the occasion of this great feast, I would like to say a little prayer, for all the priests in the world today, that dearest Mother Mary blest will bless and protect them, her sons, all of whom are so wronged, so badly treated just because they are not of this world.

Ave Maria, ora, ora, pro nobis.

Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord,
Keep them, for they are Thine.
Thy Priests, whose lives burn out before
Thy consecrated shrine.

Keep them, for they are in the world,
Though from the world apart.
When earthly pleasures tempt, allure,
Shelter them in Thy Heart.

Keep them and comfort them in hours
Of loneliness and pain.
When all their lives of sacrifice
For souls seem but in vain.

Keep them; and, oh, remember them, O dearest Lord
They have no one but Thee;
Yet they have only human hearts,
With human frailty.

Keep them as spotless as the Host
That daily they caress.
Their every thought and word and deed
Deign, dearest Lord, to bless.


Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Jesus, Mary, I love You; Save Souls!

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.
