Prayers for Our Priests During Lent

Bishop Larry Silva

Cheralyn, a spiritual mom in another diocese recently shared their intentions for their spiritual sons during Lent.  I thought her idea was a very good one and ran it past Easter.

In discussing this with Easter, we thought the following would best suit the spiritual moms in the Diocese of Honolulu.

This is from an email sent to the Spiritual moms yesterday.
With Lent beginning next week, (Ash Wednesday is March 9th), we would ask that you remember our priests in a special way.

Please pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy** and/or the Sorrowful Mysteries on either Tuesdays or Fridays during Lent. We will specifically be praying for the priest we have spiritually adopted but please remember to pray for all our priests and seminarians too!

God bless you and have a wonderfully spiritual Lenten season.

**For those of you not aware of this, Bishop Larry dedicated the Diocese of Honolulu to The Divine Mercy on Divine Mercy Sunday - April 23, 2006
