Beneath His Cross

We are a Lay Apostolate of men and women who love our priests through the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. We stand with Our Lady beneath the Cross of Jesus in prayer, sacrifice and reparation for our priests.

Beneath His Cross is a love letter through the heart of Mary to every priest.

“No words I can use would be too strong to state that the Catholic priesthood needs prayer and sacrifice as never before since Calvary.”

Servant of God Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

What priests are saying about Beneath His Cross

“I give my wholehearted and grateful support to the badly-needed initiative which is being undertaken by the members of the "Beneath His Cross" apostolate on behalf of our bishops, priests, deacons and seminarians. During these trying times when priests are typically confronted with so much opposition, infidelity and misunderstanding, as well as the relentless temptations and attacks of the powers of hell, the prayers, support and spiritual sacrifices of our dear friends of the "Beneath His Cross" apostolate are surely a great source of graces, blessings, comfort, strength and consolation to us all. May Almighty God abundantly reward them all for their unfailing love for Christ and His Church, His Eucharistic Presence, and the holy priesthood He instituted at the Last Supper.”

Fr. Bill Casey of the Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy

Dear Yolanda, I would like to thank you for your love for Christ and his priests. It was our humble honor to have you.

Beneath His Cross Apostolate is a divine gift given to the Church in a time of great crisis. It is truly a divine gift because it is divinely inspired and directed toward Christ through whom, in whom, and with whom all Christians share His holy Priesthood.

Furthermore, Beneath His Cross is a concrete way the faithful fulfill their priestly vocation. By virtue of baptism, all share in Christ’s priesthood. Now as the faithful gather, adore, and offer sacrifices together with the Blessed Lord to the Father, they realize what the Church teaches: “In him[Christ] all the faithful are made a holy and royal priesthood; they offer spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ, and they proclaim the perfections of him who has called them out of darkness into his marvelous light” (Presbyterorum Ordinis No. 2).

Thus, it is not possible for the ministerial priesthood of the ordained to truly be fulfilled and lived out authentically without the sacrificial and spiritual support of the common priesthood of the faithful. For that I pray one day all parishes will embrace this apostolate for the sake of Christ and her Church.

May you continue to be blessed and guided by the Spirit of Christ.

Yours in Christ,

Fr Anthony Le
