Prayer of the Mothers of Lu:
"O God, grant that one of my sons may become a priest! I myself want to live as a good Christian and want to guide my children always to do what is right, so that I may recieve the grace, o God, to be allowed to give you a holy priest! Amen."
The first Sundays seemed fitting as it’s an easy reminder and can be linked to other first of the month devotions and indulgences.
So please join us every Sunday in offering Mass for the Priesthood and Vocations as well as saying the prayer and asking God daily for the gift of priests and religious, especially from our own families.
The story fo the Mother's of Lu is an awesome story, an inspiration of what simple, trusting, and consistent prayer can achieve. It’s on page 18 of the booklet Adoration, Reparation, Spiritual Motherhood for Priests and worth a read before this Sunday, if you can. It will certainly inspire you as it did us. You can download the booklet here or from the lefthand sidebar. Or you can read our posting In imitation of the Mothers of Lu, where we share the whole story from the booklet there.
