Adoration, Reparation, Spiritual Motherhood for Priests

by Congregation for the Clergy

Featured eBook

    Document Information

  • Description:
    The Congregation for the Clergy has published this booklet as part of a new worldwide prayer campaign for priests launched in a letter to the bishops of the world on December 8, 2007. The campaign is to have as its centerpiece the perpetual adoration of the Eucharist, and is designed to unite all priests in a special bond with the Blessed Virgin Mary in order that they may develop a true spiritual maternity for the good of souls. The booklet outlines this program and contains many beautiful examples of persons who have exemplifed this spiritual maternity.
  • Publisher & Date:
    Congregation for the Clergy, Rome, 2007

"The vocation to be a spiritual mother for priests is hardly unknown, barely understood and consequently, rarely lived too little although fundamental and vitally important. It is a vocation that is often hidden, not apparent to the human eye, but intended to transmit spiritual life."

Because this booklet is particularly beautiful in its original presentation, it is best read in the original publication PDF file presented by the Congregation for the Clergy.
