How To Stay In A State Of Grace If You Have No Priest
By a soul
(February 13, 2020, Month Dedicated To The Passion Of Our Blessed Lord)
Blessings beloved ones,
I, “a soul”, am writing this important short commentary to help people who might end up in a situation where they have no priest to offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) and Holy Mass. As those who follow this blog, MaryRefugeOfHolyLove, know, due to the growing Schism in the Catholic Church, there may come a time when Holy Communion and Confession may only be available in an underground church which only a few people may be aware of. And honestly, I do not know if the words of consecration for the Most Holy Eucharist will be changed before the Warning (Illumination of Conscience) happens or afterwards. But, people need to be prepared as if it will happen tomorrow. And so, the most important thing that devout Catholics think about is how to stay in a state of grace if there is no priest to give the sacraments. At least, that is the most important thing for me.
Well, my beloved brothers and sisters, I want to share with you how I plan to be faithful to God during the time when priests may be scarce. This is the period of time before we will be called to stay at the permanent refuges. Thankfully, the Lord has provided us with the Book of Truth given to 7th Messenger, Maria Divine Mercy, with the prayers that we will need during the End Times. All Crusade Prayers can be found as a free download on this blog page: https://maryrefugeofholylove.com/the-book-of-truth-maria-divine-mercy/ Or, if you prefer the prayers as a bound book, you can purchase the Crusade of Prayer Book at ChristoGifts (http://christogifts.com/en/).
Now, besides the Seal of the Living God, there are two Crusade prayers that are given by Heaven which are very important to help stay in a state of grace. They are the Plenary Indulgence for Absolution and the Prayer for the Gift of Holy Communion. For convenience, all three prayers can be found on a separate page at the end of this commentary, so you can print them out for your frequent use.
Now, firstly, the Plenary Indulgence for Absolution is to help people who have no priest for Confession. It is a prayer that needs to be said for seven consecutive days after which Our Lord will absolve people of their sins (including mortal sins). It is not meant to be a substitute for the regular reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, but it has truly only been given for those who have no access to a priest. Truly, this is a very special grace from Our Lord which has been especially given during this unique period of the End Times.
And so, how would a person properly use this Prayer for a Plenary Indulgence for Absolution? Well, I would prepare as I normally do when I use the Sacrament of Reconciliation—while I am in prayer, I ask the Lord to help me to know my sins, which I type up in a list to confess later to a priest. So, I would do a modification of this but instead of having a priest to ask forgiveness from, I would apologize directly to Jesus. Then, I would say the prayer for seven consecutive days so I could be pardoned and cleansed of my sins.
Actually, I will be honest and say, if I truly did not have access to a priest, I would likely do an examination of conscience every day along with this prayer. That way, I would not have too many sins building up on me during a time when I may be stressed out greatly in my faith. Because, I would be trying my hardest to stay in a state of grace without any sin – venial or mortal—since having no priest would place greater personal responsibility on me to make sure that I am seeking God’s forgiveness properly.
Now, we know from the Book of Truth that when the words of consecration are changed for the Most Holy Eucharist, less than one-half of all priests in the world will remain with the Lord—keeping with the Tradition of Faith handed down from the Apostles. It has also been indicated in the Book of Truth that because of this, hundreds of thousands of priests will be automatically excommunicated because they will not obey the modern changes involving the Most Holy Eucharist.
So, we must pray for our priests and especially, for our Bishops, to stay faithful and true to God and Jesus when the moment presents itself (abomination of desolation), because particularly, if our Bishops remain with the Lord, it will be easier for those priests under the faithful Bishops to remain with the Lord, too. However, in the dioceses where the Bishops are disobedient, it will be a visual tragedy as there will be great divisions between the conservative and liberal factions, with the traditional priests being persecuted and possibly having to go underground to keep the faith. Clearly, it is best if the Bishops remain faithful, so the priests under them are encouraged in their faith and the faithful can continue to have access to the sacraments.
However, in the event that I do not have access to a priest to celebrate Holy Mass, I have prepared by purchasing a longtime ago a DVD of the Tridentine Latin Mass (http://stjosephsmedia.com/massdvd.htm), which I intend to use to keep my Sunday obligation (Third Commandment). I also have prayer books should there be no electricity after the Warning (Illumination of Conscience) has happened. But, for those who cannot buy a DVD, I want to suggest that you start recording a couple of Holy Masses offered by EWTN in your local area or on CatholicTV (http://www.catholictv.org/masses/catholictv-mass). Thankfully, we have a lot of online and TV options for recording the Holy Mass (you might even find a video on YouTube as well). I also want to suggest that you prepare in this way soon, because we do not know when the Holy Mass will start to be significantly changed. So, it is best that you do this now, so you are not caught off guard later.
Now, as part of the Holy Mass, it is important that we continue to receive Holy Communion—at least spiritually. Thankfully, the Blessed Mother provided in the Book of Truth, a Prayer for the Gift of Holy Communion—which can be used both for Spiritual Communion, as well as for reception of Holy Communion when we are at the permanent refuges. So, I recommend that you memorize this prayer which you can say at the appropriate time during the Holy Mass when you can only receive Spiritual Communion.
And so, I hope that my words help people as we step closer day-by-day to the eventual moment when the abomination of desolation happens in our Beloved Mother Church. It is certainly not a moment that I am looking forward to (it makes me very sad thinking about this). And personally, I really hope that I will have access to a priest so I can receive Holy Communion, because I would really miss My Jesus in this way—even if temporarily, before we are called to the permanent refuges. But, I share this commentary with you all because we do not know what lies in the future for each our circumstances. So, it is best that we prepare as we can for this.
I love you,
Book of Truth (Maria Divine Mercy)
Crusade Prayer 24: Plenary Indulgence for Absolution

They must say this prayer for seven consecutive days and they will be given the gift of total absolution and the power of the Holy Spirit. Your Beloved Jesus
O my Jesus, you are the light of the earth. You are the flame that touches all souls. Your mercy and love knows no bounds. We are not worthy of the sacrifice you made by your death on the cross, yet we know that your love for us is greater than the love we hold for you. Grant us, O Lord, the gift of humility, so that we are deserving of your new kingdom. Fill us with the Holy Spirit, so we can march forth and lead your army to proclaim the truth of your Holy Word and prepare our brothers and sisters for the glory of your Second Coming on Earth. We honor you. We praise you. We offer ourselves, our sorrows, our sufferings as a gift to you to save souls. We love you, Jesus. Have mercy on all your children wherever they may be. Amen.

Your Blessed Mother, Mother of Salvation
O Heavenly Host, fill my body with the nourishment it needs. Fill my soul with the Divine Presence of Jesus Christ. Give me the graces to fulfill the holy will of God. Fill me with the peace and calm which comes from your holy Presence. Never let me doubt your Presence. Help me to accept you in body and soul and that, by the holy Eucharist, the graces bestowed upon me will help me to proclaim the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Purify my heart. Open my soul and sanctify me when I receive the great gift of the holy Eucharist. Grant me the graces and the favors it bestows upon all God’s children and grant me immunity from the fires of purgatory. Amen.
