The Holy Hour– Extract No. 6
O Jesus, Eternal Priest, Divine Victim, who moved by an impulse of incomparable Love for men, Your brothers, You made Your Heart bring forth the Christian priesthood. Deem worthy to continue pouring over Your ministers the life-giving torrents of Your infinite Love.
Live in Your priests. Transform them into You. Make them, by Your Grace, instruments of Your Mercy. Work in them and through them. Grant that after having clothed themselves completely in You, by the faithful imitation of Your Divine Virtues, they may accomplish the same works that You Yourself accomplished for the salvation of the world, in Your Name and by the power of Your Spirit,.
Divine Redeemer of souls, look how great is the multitude of those who still sleep in the darkness of error. Count the number of the straying sheep, who walk amidst steep cliffs. Consider the throngs of the poor, the hungry, the ignorant and the feeble, who groan in the neglect.
Come back to us, Lord, through Your priests. Truly live again in them. Work through them, and walk again in the world, teaching, forgiving, consoling, sacrificing and renewing the sacred links of love, between the Heart of God and the heart of man. Amen.
Grant, O Jesus, that the labor of Your Love may always be in complete accordance with the purposes, for which You intended. Grant that it expands and consolidates itself, and that it conquers all souls for the sweetest Kingdom of Your Love.
O Jesus, I have asked for Your Kingdom. I do not need to ask for myself, for everything will be given to me. You know what I need. Look, and do what Your Heart suggests. I put my trust in Your Heart. I abandon myself to Your sweet Providence, and I give You thanks for the gift of these hours of intimacy with You. I thank You in union with Mary, for all the benefits that Your Love has yet reserved for me, in time, and in eternity.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Through the rest of 2002, Scoop will be publishing a series of daily reflections on spiritual matters from Bolivian author Katya Rivas. Rivas, has received an official imprimatur from the Catholic Church for several books she says she was instructed to write by Jesus Christ, Mary and various Angels. Scoop’s extract, above, comes from Rivas’s book “The Door to Heaven”. In 1999 Katya Rivas was the subject of a top-rating documentary show hosted by Mike Willessee (see Scoop TV review - Jesus Christ Tells FOXNews He Wants To Hug World and Scoop Images ). More recently Rivas says she was instructed by Jesus to have her books translated and published on the internet with the intention of having the books distributed to as wide an audience as possible. Several of the books can now be read online at http://www.greatcrusade.org/, and more are coming soon.
