Pray for Priests


One of the most noble tasks we can accomplish in this world is prayer. Prayer is our direct link to God. When we pray before the tabernacle, it is better than being granted an audience before a king, for we are beholding the King of Kings. He is ready to hear our every request and answers them all, even if not in the way we expect. 

We forget though that this privilege of praying before our King is brought to us only by His priests. Without the priest, we would not be able to adore Jesus in the tabernacle, nor receive Him at Mass, nor attend Mass at all. A priest is another Christ and as such holds such a great dignity in his vocation. These days it is hard to find truly holy priests, but that is where prayer comes in.

Today is Fathers' Day and our priests fall under that title in the spiritual sense because they guide us as children to reach Heaven. We must pray for them that they may be holy and that there may be more priests who give their lives to such a praiseworthy mission. There is no greater goal than winning souls for Christ. Let us support our priests and be grateful to them for helping us in our path of sanctity by remembering them daily before the tabernacle, especially today as our spiritual fathers.
