Our Lord gave this beautiful message to St. Faustina: “My daughter, tell the whole world about My inconceivable mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon these souls that approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sin and punishment. On that day all the divine flood gates through which grace flow are opened….” (Diary #699).

You are invited to the Spiritual Motherhood of Priests
For our Diocesan Priests, Deacons and Seminarians
You can become a Spiritual Mother and adopt a Priest-Son!!! There are only three things required:
Eucharistic Adoration, weekly (If you already have a Holy Hour each week there is no need to do more). Just add your Priest-Son to your prayers during your Holy Hour.
Three short prayers each day for your Priest-Son, a card will be given to you.
It is recommended to receive the Sacrament of Confession frequently.
That is all there is to it!! So simple!! So easy!! No meetings and no cost!!
Your only meeting is once a week with God during Eucharistic Adoration as you pray for your Priest-Son.
A short ceremony will be available in the fall for those who choose to become Spiritual Mothers: to pray the commitment prayer before the Eucharist, receive the blessing to carry this out, and receive their Priest-Son’s name. If you are interested in becoming a Spiritual Mother or have any questions, all you need to do is call one of the numbers below for more information.
