The aim of "The Apostolate of Prayers for Priests" is the sanctification of all priests - that is, the conversion of those who have fallen away into error or heresy; the strengthening of the weak; the perseverance of the faithful priests; and the souls of the priests in Purgatory, with particular prayers for the Pope and Hierarchy of Holy Mother the Church. No priest is excluded from our prayers. Members have made an act of dedication of their lives of praying each day for priests.
"The Apostolate of Prayers for Priests" is the fruit of the Ignatian retreat that took place in Albury during February, 1989. It had the blessing of the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
Twice a year in June (the month of the Sacred Heart) and October (the month of the Holy Rosary) each member is allocated a particular priest to pray for that month, over and above the normal daily prayers for priests (10 small prayers from our prayer book) and the recitation of the Litany of the Precious Blood each day for the Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and Priests, for their speedy return to tradition and the faith of the Eternal Church.
Members may adopt a particular priest for whom they wish to pray regularly, along with the general intentions of "The Apostolate." "The Apostolate" is the work of the Church Militant in justice to those who provide for our spiritual needs.
"The Apostolate" is open to all practicing Traditional Catholics, both men and women, as it is a purely spiritual work.
"The Apostolate" has members in all States of Australia and in fourteen overseas countries.
"The Apostolate of Prayers for Priests" is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows, Saint Joseph and Saint Therese of Lisieux.
All applications for membership must be registered in Australia.
