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."

Litany for Priests
Jesus, Eternal and High Priest, protect
and strengthen your priests!
"Offer yourself as a victim for My
priests. Unite yourself to My sacrifice for gaining them graces”
