The Year For Priests...
Today, the Feast of the Sacred Heart, is the official start of the Year for Priests, declared by the Holy Father.
He has written a wonderful letter, which you can read HERE. I shall be looking carefully for a good quote for next year's Chrism Mass Thank-You card... the difficulty will be deciding which quote to use, I think.
For me, the whole thing can be summed up very simply, and it's the reason I feel my vocation involves praying for priests: no priests = no Sacraments, no Sacraments = no Church. Therefore, no priests = no Church.
Pray for our priests. Pray for vocations to the priesthood. And remember to thank our priests for answering God's call.
