Intercessory Novena of Padre Pío for all the Priests of the Entire World
Oh, Jesus! Greater Priest, King of Love,
protect, safeguard and guide all the priests of the entire world.
For the sorrowful silence experienced by Padre Pío,
may fortitude and faith overcome all weaknesses.
For the inner and physical agony, experienced by Padre Pío,
may the priests of the entire world love their sacrifice for Christ.
For the wounds that Padre Pío carried in his body,
may the priests be living temples of the Love of Christ.
For the loving and unconditional surrender of Padre Pío,
may the priests be true and holy instruments of Christ.
For the compassionate and Christic love experienced until the end by Padre Pío,
may the priests be pure sources of self-giving and love.
(repeat three times)
For all the merits, renunciations, sacrifices and surrenders of love,
experienced by Saint Pío of Pietrelcina,
may the priests of the world be protected and safeguarded
by the invincible priestly Mantle of Christ.
Today I offer you this new rosary so that the mothers, sisters, brothers and believers in Christ may pray these mysteries of love lived and experienced by Padre Pío, so that the example of his life, his surrender and his passion for Jesus, through his five painful wounds, be the means through which all priests become like the faithful model of this Saint, Priest and healer of souls, so the liberation granted by Padre Pío may undo the ties of the priests oppressed by the illusion of the adversary, and so that the sanctifying Grace of the Holy Spirit may bring them all the strength of renewal and the apostolate in Christ.
I thank all of you who already pray, and those who will begin to pray for My Companions.
Who blesses you,
Your Master and Lord, Christ Jesus
