Jesus, Eternal Priest - A Prayer for Priests

O Jesus,
Eternal Priest,
keep Thy priests within the shelter
of Thy Sacred Heart,
where none may touch them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands, 
which daily touch
Thy Sacred Body;

Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood;

Keep pure and unworldly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime mark of Thy Priesthood.

Let Thy holy love surround them from the
world's contagion.  
Bless their labors with abundant fruit.

May the souls to whom they minister be their joy
and consolation here,
and their everlasting crown in heaven.

Prayer for Holy Priests

Source: Truth Himself

"The life of a priest is an Advent
 bringing forth the Incarnation of souls."
St Elizabeth of the Trinity


(St Charles Borromeo)
O Holy Mother of God, 
pray for the priests
your Son has chosen to serve the Church.
Help them, by your intercession,
to be holy, zealous and chaste.
Make them models of virtue
in the service of God’s people.
Help them to be prayerful in meditations,
efficacious in preaching,
and zealous in the daily offering of
the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Help them administer the sacraments with joy.

Global Rosary Relay for Priests

TV promo version of Global Rosary Relay for Priests

Reflection of Bishop Larry

Jesus told us that the kingdom of God belongs to those who make themselves like children.  The rosary is such an unsophisticated and simple prayer that we can overlook its power to connect us closely to the mysteries of the life of the Lord and his beloved Mother.  We pray it as if we were children, repeating our limited words over and over again.  And, as with a child, our loving Father and our beloved Mother respond in a way we never imagined possible.  We thank God for the gift of the rosary, and through praying it, may the Lord bless all our priests, so that they can be childlike in their faith, their trust and their joy!

Opening of the Centennial Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima's Appearance

We encourage all families, young adults, leaders of prayer groups and their members, church leaders, our priests, and clergy to attend this event. 

The International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, the statue that travels around the world will be here on our Islands from January 29 to February 4, 2017. The event below marks the opening of the centennial celebration of Our Lady of Fatima's first apparition to the three children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917. The Roman Catholic Church in Hawaii invites all to be a part of this celebration. Here in Hawaii, this event -- Solidarity in Prayer -- will be held at Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Peace at 1184 Bishop Street on Thursday, October 13, 2016 from 7 - 8 p.m. 

Our very own bishop, Bishop Larry Silva, will have the statue of Our Lady of Fatima that was created by the same artist of the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima available at the cathedral. Here is excerpt for the October 13th celebration:

“The statue of Our Lady of Fatima we venerate at this evening’s service was made for Sister Mary Dolorine Pires, SS.CC. by Jose Ferreira Thedim, carved the wooden statue of Our Lady of Fatima that now is venerated in the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal.  Our statue is an exact replica of the one in the Shrine in Fatima and is one of only a handful that was made by the same sculptor.  Sister Mary Dolorine’s father pleaded with the artist to make a special copy of the statue for his daughter, and Sister gifted the statue to Bishop Larry Silva with the intention that it be the legacy of the Diocese of Honolulu.”

Don't miss this significant event in our diocese, Diocese of Honolulu.

For questions or more information, contact Deacon Modesto Cordero, Director of the Office of Worship at or at (808)585-3342 or Easter Almuena, assistant to the director at Mahalo!
