Eucharistic Novena: January 6~14

 This novena was brought to my attention by Jane at Spiritual Mothers of Priests. Fr. Mark at Vultus Christi is starting a Eucharistic Novena on January 6th, the Feast of the Epiphany.
In this Year for Priests it is so important to pray for our priests. This novena seems to be a powerful way to do that.
You can find out more about why Fr. Mark will be praying this novena, and also find the text for the prayers by visiting his blog.
If you decide to pray this novena, please leave him a comment.
O Mary, Queen of the Apostles, obtain for us many holy and faithful priests!

I had trouble leaving a comment on his site, I don't think computers are overly fond of me :) I did start the novena yesterday though.

I have had trouble with Fr Mark's site in the past as well. You may also have to register or comment under anonymous. The prayer is what counts and God knows you are praying.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
