07 September 2014: Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Love is the fulfilment of the Law

A deep gratitude to the priests in the Richmond Catholic Parish and all the fathers who have dedicated their lives for their families.

Happy Father's Day

Prayer for Priest

O Jesus, our great High Priest,
hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priests.

Give them a deep faith,
a bright and firm hope and a burning love
which will ever increase in the course of their priestly life.

In their loneliness, comfort them.
In their sorrows, strengthen them.
In their frustrations, point out to them that
it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and
show them that they are needed by the Church,
they are needed by souls,
they are needed for the work of redemption.

O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests,
take to your heart your sons who are close to you
because of their priestly ordination,
and because of the power
which they have received to carry on the work of Christ
in a world which needs them so much.

Be their comfort, be their joy, be their strength,
and especially help them to live and
to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy.

Amen.
