Priests & The Blessed Virgin Mary

Also See: Priests (Topic Page) | Blessed Virgin Mary (Topic Page)

"Let priests love and venerate with filial devotion and veneration this mother of the Eternal High Priest, Queen of Apostles and Protector of their own ministry." (Second Vatican Council)

"The priest even more than the faithful should have devotion to Our Lady, for the relation of the priest to Christ is more deeply and truly like that which Mary bears to her Divine Son." (Pope Pius XI, "Ad Catholici Sacerdotii", 1935 A.D.)

"And in particular, when we celebrate the Eucharist and stand each day on Golgotha, we need to have near us the one who through heroic faith carried to its zenith her union with her Son, precisely then on Golgotha." (Pope John Paul II)

"In your apostolic labors and the difficulties of your ministry take refuge under her very powerful patronage. If she beseeches her divine Son, you will experience with certainty that there is nothing which you, sustained by divine grace, are unable to bring to a successful issue." (Pope Pius XII)

"When you meet very serious difficulties in the path of holiness and the exercise of your ministry, turn your eyes and your mind trustfully to her who is the Mother of the Eternal Priest and therefore the loving Mother of all Catholic priests. You are well aware of the goodness of this Mother." (Pope Pius XII, "Menti Nostrae", 1950 A.D.)

"Dear Brothers [in the Priesthood]: who more than we has an absolute need of a deep and unshakable faith - we, who by virtue of the apostolic succession begun in the Upper Room celebrate the sacrament of Christ's sacrifice? We must therefore constantly deepen our spiritual bond with the Mother of God" (Pope John Paul II, 1988)

"Our Lady loves everyone with a most tender love, but She has a particular predilection for priests who are the living image of Jesus Christ. Take comfort in the thought of the love of the Divine Mother for each of you and you will find the labors of your sanctification and priestly ministry much easier." (Pope Pius XII, "Menti Nostrae", 1950 A.D.)

"If the priesthood is by its nature ministerial, we must live it in union with the Mother who is the Handmaid of the Lord. Then our priesthood will be kept safe in her hands, indeed in her heart, and we shall be able to open it to everyone. In this way our priesthood, in all its dimensions, will be fruitful and salvific." (Pope John Paul II)

"To the Beloved Mother of God, mediatrix of heavenly graces, We entrust the priests of the whole world in order that, through her intercession, God will vouchsafe a generous outpouring of His Spirit which will move all ministers of the altar to holiness and, through their ministry, will spiritually renew the face of the earth." (Pope Pius XII, "Menti Nostrae", 1950 A.D.)

"To try to make the people good without inspiring them with love for the Blessed Virgin is to labor in vain. The better the people are made to understand what God has given us in Mary, the sooner they will do away with their evil habits and practice virtue. That priest, then, who understands best to promote love to Mary among the people by introducing the devotion of the Rosary, will meet with most success in his apostolic labors." (Muller)

"And you, Venerable Brethren, - the more you have at heart the honor of Mary, and the welfare of human society, the more diligently apply yourselves to nourish the piety of the people towards the great Virgin, and to increase their confidence in her. We believe it to be part of the designs of Providence that, in these times of trial for the Church, the ancient devotion to the august Virgin should live and flourish amid the greatest part of the Christian world." (Pope Leo XIII, "Supremi Apostolatus Officio", 1883 A.D.)

"The reality of Golgotha is truly an amazing one: the reality of Christ's sacrifice for the redemption of the world! Equally amazing is the mystery of God of which we are ministers in the sacramental order (cf. 1 Cor. 4.1). But are we not threatened by the danger of being unworthy ministers? By the danger of not presenting ourselves with sufficient fidelity at the foot of Christ's cross as we celebrate the Eucharist? Let us strive to be close to that Mother in whose heart is inscribed in a unique and incomparable way the mystery of the world's redemption." (Pope John Paul II)

"Ambrose holds up the life of the Virgin Mary as the model of virgins. 'Imitate her, my daughters...! Let Mary's life be for you like the portrayal of virginity, for from her, as though from a mirror, is reflected the beauty of chastity and the ideal of virtue. See in her the pattern of your life, for in her, as though in a model, manifest teachings of goodness show what you should correct, what you should copy and what preserve...She is the image of virginity. For such was Mary that her life alone suffices for the instruction of all... Therefore let holy Mary guide your way of life.'" (Pope Pius XII, "Sacra Virginitas", 1954 A.D.)

"The good wishes which we convey to you in return, we entrust to the care of the great Virgin Mother, Queen of Apostles, in order that they may be fulfilled even more abundantly. It was she who by her example showed the Apostles, who were the first to share the blessing of the priesthood, how they should persevere with one mind in prayer until they were clothed with power from on high; by her prayers she secured that power for them in more abundant measure, she increased and strengthened it by her counsel, so that their labors were abundantly blessed." (Pope St. Pius X, "Haerent Animo", 1908 A.D.)
