"Today bring to Me the Souls of Priests and
Religious, and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy. It
was they who gave me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as
through channels My mercy flows out upon mankind." Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good,
increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service,* that they may
perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father
of Mercy who is in heaven.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon
the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard -- upon the souls of priests and
religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of
the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and
light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with
one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end.
