Year of the Priesthood

The year of the priesthood begins tomorrow on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. We are going to attend the vespers at St. Peter's that will kick off the year. I ask for your prayers for priests and for the young men preparing to be priests that we have the heart of the Lord Jesus -- pure and generous. I'll let you know how it goes.

Father,

I came upon The Litany of
Rosa Mystica. The entire
litany is a prayer for
priests and religious.
Some of the titles of Mary
in this litany are both
beautiful and unique--
Rose of the Heavenly Garden,
Shield of Courage, Gate of
the Enclosed Yard, Wind of
Gentleness, Thunder of
Resolution, Mountain of
Steadfastness, Depth of
Commitment, etc.

Just thought you'd like to
know.

God bless you and keep you
safe.
