Adopt a priest

Adopt a priest and pray for his sanctification

"...I want souls who are dedicated with fervor, with determination and without looking for rest, to plead day and night for My priests"  Jesus to Blesssed Concepcion Cabrera de Armida

The Apostleship of the Cross, a Ministry centered on the Priesthood of Christ and His Priestly people, invites you to spend a Holy Hour of Adoration to pray for priests.

We want to invite all people to participate in this apostolate by adopting a priest, and offer prayers and sacrifices for their sanctification. 

Our priests need our prayerful support of their ministry to accomplish the mission God has given them. 

"May this new jubilee year be a propitious occasion to reflect on the value and importance of the priestly mission and to ask the Lord to make a gift of many priests to his Church." Benedict XVI

Spiritual Motherhood for Priests

The vocation to be a spiritual mother for priests is largely unknown, scarcely understood and, consequently, rarely lived, notwithstanding its fundamental importance. It is a vocation that is frequently hidden, invisible to the naked eye, but meant to transmit spiritual life. Pope John Paul II, was so convinced of its importance that he established a cloistered convent in the Vatican where nuns would pray for the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff.
