    July 15, 2019  Saint Bonaventure     Dear Family of Mary!

"...My children,  as a mother I am telling you: you cannot go on the way of faith and  follow my Son without your shepherds. Pray that they may have the  strength and the love to lead you. May your prayers always be alongside  them. Thank you.  (July 2, 2019)

The past few days in Medjugorje priests from  all over the world have gathered for the Annual Priest's Retreat. It is  reported that over 350 priests attended from 32 countries. After Holy  Mass on Saturday night- July 13 - the priest retreatants gathered around  the altar and gave a priestly blessing to all the pilgrims at the  church! It was a powerful moment!! (See the picture above)
 

Our  Lady frequently reminds us to pray for our priests. She knows how very  much we need them. They are our connection with heaven and with Jesus.  Without them, we could not receive the Sacraments, of which we have  great need. Here are two prayers that may help us to pray for our  priests daily. St. Pope John Paul II and St. Faustina Kowalska, our  great Polish saints, wrote these prayers. We can pray them with all our hearts!    St. Pope John Paul II's Prayer for Priests to Our Blessed Mother
