In 2007, the Congregation for the Clergy invited women to consider making a commitment of prayer and sacrifice for the sanctification of priests. In our diocese many women have made a yearly commitment to pray for a particular priest, seminarian or discerner through our Spiritual Motherhood program. This includes a commitment to prayer and offerings for the priests of our diocese, who greatly need our prayers and spiritual support.
For more information on Spiritual Motherhood, please read “Eucharistic Adoration for the Sanctification of Priests and Spiritual Maternity” published by the Congregation for the Clergy. The book Praying for Priests by Kathleen Beckman and published by Sophia Press is also a wonderful resource.
