Father’s Day- Don’t Forget your Priest!

Please check out Catholic Icing's ideas.

Another way to wish your priest or in our case, our spiritual sons a Happy "Father's" Day is to have a mass offered for his intentions. Remember, the Masses we have offered while we are still alive will be more beneficial to our souls that those offered after we have died.

World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests – June 15th

Blessed John Paul II established that, on the solemnity of the Sacred Heart, the Church will observe the World Day of prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. In 2002, the Catholic Church announced a special annual world priest day, a day of prayer for the sanctification of priests to be held on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Please pray for our priests as we observe this beautiful feast day this coming Friday!

"O Priest!"

"O Priest! You are not yourself because you are God. 
You are not of yourself because you are the servant and minister of Christ. You are not your own because you are the spouse of the Church. 
You are not yourself because you are the mediator between God and man. You are not from yourself because you are nothing.

What then are you? Nothing and everything.

O Priest! 
Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you: '
He saved others, himself he cannot save!'"
Said by St. Norbert on the occasion of his ordination. Truth Himself

We thank you, God our Father, for those who have responded to your call to priestly ministry. Accept this prayer we offer on their behalf: Fill your priests with the sure knowledge of your love. Open their hearts to the power and consolation of the Holy Spirit. Lead them to new depths of union with your Son. Increase in them profound faith in the Sacraments they celebrate as they nourish, strengthen and heal us.

Happy Anniversary Father Khanh Hoang

Spiritual Moms please join us in praying for Father Khanh at this the anniversary of his ordination.
Mass was offered for his intentions this morning.

Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Priests by Blessed John Paul II

Father most holy,
I offer You the prayers, works,
joys, and sufferings of this day
by placing them in the holy and venerable hands
of Jesus, the Eternal High Priest,
and by saying, as He did upon entering the world,
"Behold, I come to do Your will" (Hebrews 10:9).

For the sake of all His priests,
and in particular for Father Khanh.,
I entreat Your beloved Son to unite my offering
to the Sacrifice of the Cross,
renewed upon the altars of Your Church
from the rising of the sun to its setting (Malachy 1:11).

Most merciful Father,
look upon these men chosen by Your Son
to show forth His death until He comes (1 Cor 11:26);
keep them from the Evil One (John 17:15)
and sanctify them in the truth (John 17:17).

Bind them by a most tender love
to the Virgin Mary, their Mother
that, by her intercession,
they may be overshadowed by the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:35)
in every act of their sacred ministry;
thus may their priesthood reveal
the Face of Jesus and the merciful love of His Heart,
for the fruitfulness of His spouse, the Church.
and the praise of Your glory. Amen.
Amen. Source
