Feast of St. Jean Marie Vianney - Patron Saint of Priests

Picture source.

In honor of St. Jean Vianney's feast day,  and on behalf of The Spiritual Moms Apostolate in the Diocese of Honolulu,  Mass for all the priests in this diocese, Bishop Larry and our holy father, Benedict XVI, was offered. Their Mass was celebrated this morning at 7:00 a.m. at Sts. Peter and Paul Church.

The Holy Rosary was also offered for their intentions prior to Mass.

It was very fitting that we prayed the Luminous Mysteries today especially as we meditated on the last Luminous Mystery, the Institution of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper. As we know that is when Jesus also instituted the sacrament of Holy Orders.

St. John Vianney, Patron Saint of Parish Priests, pray for all our priests, especially our spiritual sons in the Diocese of Honolulu.
