A German nun (Franciscan Third Order Mutter Katharina Vogls – – – whose cause for beatification is open), received the grace of hearing the following words from our Lord and Savior:
“One should NEVER attack a priest, even when he’s in error.
“Rather, one should pray and do penance that I’ll grant him My grace again.
“He alone fully represents Me, even when he doesn’t live after My example!
“When a Priest falls we should extend him a helping hand THROUGH PRAYER AND NOT THROUGH ATTACKS!
“I myself will be his judge, NO ONE BUT I! Whoever voices judgment over a priest has voiced it over Me; child, never let a Priest be attacked, take up his defense.
“Child, Never judge your confessor, rather pray much for him and offer every Thursday, through the hands of My blessed Mother, Holy Communion (for him); Never again accept an out-of-the-way word about a Priest, and speak no unkind word (about them) EVEN IF IT WERE TRUE!
“Every Priest is My Vicar and My heart will be sickened and insulted because of it! If you hear a judgment (against a Priest) pray a Hail Mary.”

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.
Blessed art Thou amongst women and blessed is the Fruit of Thy womb, Jesus!
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
