Lord, give us holy priests; You Yourself maintain them in holiness. O Divine and Great High Priest, may the power of Your mercy accompany them everywhere and protect them from the devil's snares which are continually being set for the souls of priests. May the power of Your mercy, O Lord, shatter and bring to naught all that might tarnish the sanctity of priests, for You can do all things. #prayforpriests

Today let us pray for Sister Jordan Rose, a Sister of Life from Cottonwood, Idaho. Sister Jordan Rose graduated from Washington State University with a degree in elementary education. She is working with the formation team at the postulant house in the Bronx, New York and traveling the country speaking about her experiences and inviting women to consider a religious vocation. www.sistersoflife.org #prayforvocations #prolife #amdg #romancatholicchurch #prayforpriests #sistersoflife

We were blessed to host another healing Mass with Fr. Michael Barry last night. God is definitely using Fr. Barry as His instrument to pray for us all and we are truly grateful to Fr.

ONE priest can change the world! I love a super soft shirt with a good message! So many people buy them as gifts for seminarians and priests, but the small size makes a great gift for an order child, too. https://vocationministry.com/shop/one-priest-can-change-the-world-shirt/ #vocationministry #priestsarecool #prayforpriests #priests #priestselfie #priestsforlife

Our Fr. John is the Catholic Diocese of Biloxi Priest of the Week!! Let us pray for all the priests in our diocese. Each week, we will select an individual priest to lift up in prayer. This week, in a special way, let us pray for Father John Noone, who is retired. Please remember Father Noone and all of our priests in your prayers. Let us also pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Prayer for Priests Gracious and loving God, we thank your for the gift of our priests. Through them, we experience your presence in the sacraments. Help our priests to be strong in their vocation. Set their souls on fire with love for your people. Grant them the wisdom, understanding, and strength they need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Inspire them with the vision of your Kingdom. Give them the words they need to spread the Gospel. Allow them to experience joy in their ministry. Help them to become instruments of your divine grace. We ask this through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest. Amen. #prayforpriests #stcbchurch #dioceseofbiloxi

A summer musing: Over the course of the past few weeks/months, my devotion and awe towards the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist has increased exponentially. I don’t intend to be prideful in expressing this, but rather I would like to express thoughts that I have had while thinking about the real presence. Part of this “exponential” increase in devotion, reverence, and awe primarily has to do with being PHYSICALLY close to the sacred species- before and after the consecration, and even handling sacred vessels which may certainly still contain particles/droplets of the sacred species, although they may not be visible. Part of the privilege and honour of being an altar boy/being able to pray the mass in the sanctuary is how close you are to the “action” of the mass- especially at the time of the consecration. When it comes time for the priest to elevate the host and the chalice, I sometimes find myself trembling at the sight of what appears to be bread and wine, but knowing in my heart that my eyes are deceiving me, and that what I am seeing transcends beyond the depth of my understanding. Among other things, the quality of our Lord that I see most in the Holy Eucharist is his HUMILITY. First he came down from heaven, humbled himself to come down to our level and become human, and now his body and blood, soul and divinity are completely and wholly present in the PHYSICAL FORMS of bread and wine, every single day that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered (which is everyday). Our Lord loves us so much and possesses so much humility that he presents himself to us and SANCTIFIES us with his body and blood, soul and divinity in such a way that is familiar to us human beings (the physical). I encourage you all to pray to the Holy Spirit to continue to increase your devotion to the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. This, my brothers and sisters is what sets us apart from any other Christian or Protestant denomination out there- Christ is PHYSICALLY present with us every time we enter a Catholic Church, and every time we pray the Holy Mass, through the Blessed Sacrament.

What are your favorite spiritual books in any or all of the following categories: Liturgical: Life of a saint book: To prompt mental prayer: Church History: Our Lord: Our Lady: A special devotion:

Listen to our most recent Sermon: “WE WAIT AS TRUE SONS OF GOD” (Click on the link in our profile and select Sermons) 4th Sunday after Pentecost 2019 The reception of the Holy Eucharist is most important for our spiritual life and we are given life through It as also through the flowing of our Lord’s Precious Blood.  We have been made sons of God and always remain ready to respond to whatever God asks of us. • In today’s Gospel we see how the apostles, especially St. Peter, answered Our Lord’s directive promptly and their obedience was rewarded.  This is an example for us on how we are to follow our own vocations.

Please join us the evening of Tuesday July 16th at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Coeur d’Alene. Seminarians Tim Segert, Nat Loe, Johnny Mueller, Joshua Falce and Darrell Falcomburg will be available from 6-7 pm to talk about vocations. This is especially relevant to anyone discerning a religious vocation. Holy Hour led by the seminarians will follow from 7-8 pm. @stthomascda #prayforpriests #prayforvocations #catholic #eucharist #eucharisticadoration

Pray for them, encourage them, and support them.#vocationministry #prayforpriests

Need advice on family and relationships? It’s all in today’s Gospel... but it’s a little hard to find. Fr. Gamez breaks it down for us: “When we first hear this gospel, perhaps we may initially think to ourselves, gee , the Lord is being really harsh here. But in reality, if we meditate on what he is saying, it's actually quite reasonable. Our Lord is essentially relating to us that, as part of being a disciple ... as part of being an apostle and spreading the Gospel, the first, first things are first. And the first thing that is first is the first commandment to love God above all — place our love and affection towards Him above everything else. And the reason for that is because only when we set our heart to love the highest good, which is God Himself, do we find peace in our lives. Placing such things above this ... placing such divine expectations on imperfect family members and friends is truly a recipe for disaster. It's a recipe for deep disappointments, frustrations and strife and that's where the lack of peace comes in. And so very much there there is a sword there between our relatives and friends when we have this divine expectation on them that we should have on God. If, however, we do order our love to God first, then and only then, can we properly love everyone else. Because in that way, we will begin to view them and love them in a more compassionate way. “ #bookofmatthew #todaysgospel #catholic #romancatholic #catholicchurch #catholicism #catholicisme #holyspirit #lovebeingcatholic #catholicteens #catholicandproud #catholiclife #holymass #eucharist #liturgy #greatestcommandment #prayforpriests #catholicpriests

A blessed evening with good friends to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Priesthood for our beloved Fr. B. #instituteofthegoodshepherd #stpiusi . . Oh! How great a priest is! A good pastor, a pastor according to the Heart of God, is the greatest treasure that God can grant a parish, and one of the most precious gifts of Divine Mercy. The Priesthood is the love of the Heart of Jesus. . . Prayer for Priests Taken from Christian Warfare O Almighty Eternal God, look upon the face of Thy Christ, and for love of Him who is the eternal High-priest, have pity on thy priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands. Keep them close to Thee, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation. O Jesus, I pray for Thy faithful and fervent priests; for Thy unfaithful and tepid priests; for Thy priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Thy tempted priests; for Thy lonely and desolate priests; for Thy young priests; for Thy dying priests; for the souls of your priests in purgatory. But above all, I recommend to Thee the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and gave me Thy Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me or helped and encouraged me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particularly our priests at [your church name here]. O Jesus, keep them all close to Thy heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen. . . . . . . . #prayerforpriests #prayforpriests #traditionalcatholic #fssp #catholicfamiky #liturgicalliving #catholic #traditionalcatholicfamily #liturgicallivingtlm #priestlyanniversary

During Ordinary Time, the daily Gospel readings are a time for us to walk with Christ and His disciples. As you read the Word, you will see a pattern of miracles and evangelization. At Mass, you too will hear a call from our priests for us to also go forth and evangelize. In the words of Alan Ames in his book In the Spirit of Love, “Do not worry about what other people think of you — only worry about what God thinks. As you go about the world in this way, God pours out His grace to change lives and change the world.” Amen. #evangelize #walkwithchrist #alanames #lovebeingcatholic #catholic #romancatholic #catholicchurch #catholicism #catholicisme #holyspirit #lovebeingcatholic #catholicteens #catholicandproud #catholiclife #holymass #eucharist #liturgy #prayforpriests #catholicpriests #breviary #breviaryviews #praytherosary #breviaryviews #ordinarytime

One of my favorite things about this second year in the life of my business has been the onslaught of orders for priestly ordination cards! Each and every time I receive one, it is a jolt of joy to my heart... knowing that my vision is taking shape, that I am meeting a need, that people who love priests are finding cards that can communicate their heart, and that these brave, blessed newly ordained can be gifted with a genuine expression of love and gratitude as they begin this new, difficult, sacred calling. ❤ We are mightily in need of holy priests. And of holy people to love and support our holy priests. I am so privileged to have a hand in your living out love! . . . . . . . #goodportionco #thisisthegoodportion #priestlyordination #holyorders #ordinationcards #priestlyordinationcards #prayforpriests #holypriests #goodshepherds #liveoutlove #givelove #loveoneanother #lovestrong #lovebig #givepresence #communion #greetingcards #catholicgreetingcards #greetingcardmaker #catholicgifts #catholicartisans #catholicetsy #catholicmakers #makersbiz #etsymakers #makesomethingbeautiful #dowhatyoulove #truthgoodnessbeauty #bealight #catholiclife

4 months for... vocations. Day 14: July 10 I started this account as a way to hold myself accountable to prepare for the Run for Vocations 10k, and 2 weeks into my efforts, this is the prayer we read at daily Mass. I also found myself pulled to pray for priests and future priestly vocations as I was pushing through the last leg of my run today. So today is unequivocally dedicated to praying for a holy priesthood, as well as the people around those who have a call to serve the Church. May we build supportive communities that are blessed with and care for true servants of God. In a special way, I pray for "my" seminarian Jimmy, my pastor Fr. Dan, and the pastor of Our Lady of the Seas in Buxton, NC, Fr. Fred. #holypriesthood #priestlyvocations #vocations #prayforpriests #runforvocations #c25k #w4d3

Have you heard of an Elijah Cup? This devotion, introduced to my family when we lived in GA, is one which is devoted to prayer for an increase to vocations to religious life. The cup, itself, serves as a focal point - to remind the person praying to pray for the individuals they may know in seminary, in the novitiate, or even those who are not yet old enough to discern (ahem, our children). In today’s Gospel (MT 9:32-38), we hear explicitly from Christ, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest." As I sat in daily Mass, I called to mind the Elijah Cup gifted to me before I left GA. We are the harvest. Our priests and religious are the laborers. And, it is up to each and every one of us to pray for vocations - to ask in our prayers that the laborers God has called, answer that call to the priesthood and religious life. Our harvest is abundant, there is much work to do. But, we must be willing to do the work - and, part of that includes asking God to send out His laborers... and, asking us to remember to invite our family members and community into a period of discernment... to see if He is calling them to become a laborer. And, if they have answered His call, it is also our duty and responsibility to pray for their success, their continued devotion, and their continued faithfulness to God and their vocation. Will you join me in praying today for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life? Will you join me in praying for the laborers who are harvesting? Will you join me in perhaps answering His call for each of us today? #religiouslife #prayforpriests #prayforvocations #priesthood #vocations #catholiclife #elijahcup #poweroftherosary #rosarywarrior #championsoftherosary #catholicfamily #powerofprayer #prayerlife #gospelmessage

Countdown to Fr. Gamez... He’s here! He’s here! Please welcome him with open hearts and let’s all lift him in prayer! You came from among us to be, for us, one who serves. We thank you for ministering Christ to us and helping us minister Christ to each other. We are grateful for the many gifts you bring to our community: for drawing us together in worship, for visiting us in our homes, for comforting us in sickness, for showing us compassion, for blessing our marriage, for baptizing our children, for confirming us in our calling, for supporting us in bereavement, for helping us to grow in our faith, for encouraging us to take the initiative, for helping the whole community realize God's presence among us. For our part, we pray that we may always be attentive to your needs and never take you for granted. You, like us, need friendship and love, welcome and a sense of belonging, kind words and acts of thoughtfulness. We pray, also, for the priests who have wounded priesthood. May we be willing to forgive and may they be open to healing. Let us support one another during times of crisis. God our Father, we ask you to bless our Priests and confirm them in their calling. Give them the gifts they need to respond with generosity and a joyful heart. We offer this prayer for our priests, who are our brothers and friends. Amen #catholic #romancatholic #catholicchurch #catholicism #catholicisme #holyspirit #lovebeingcatholic #catholicteens #catholicandproud #catholiclife #holymass #eucharist #liturgy #prayforpriests #catholicpriests

Over the last couple of months I have been feeling an urgent call to pray for priests, specifically my parish priest. I haven't read this book, but plan to start it soon. Meanwhile, I'm praying St. Therese's prayer for priests every morning, and praying a decade of the rosary most nights for my parish priest in particular. Are you feeling this same call to pray for our priests? I've put a link to the book in my bio under Recommended Reading if you want to check it out 📚 Rosary available in the Marian Graces store 🙏 . . . . . #prayforpriests #catholicfaith #catholicmom #catholicmum #catholicwoman #catholiclife #catholicliving #catholic #catholicbook #catholicreads #catholicbooks #catholicprayer #christianlife

My take from mass this morning......pray for our priests!!! ✝️ ✝️ “He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest” -Luke 10:2 @archomaha #catholic #prayforpriests #omaha #sundaymass🙏 #oneholycatholicandapostolic

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost - July 7, 2019 In the Epistle (Romans 8, 18-23) for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, St. Paul explains that the Church endures the humiliations inflicted upon her by her enemies. She groans while waiting for her deliverance. • All creatures, animate and inanimate, are subject to corruption, decay and death, in consequence of Adam's sin. Yet all wait to be delivered, for when man is regenerated and transformed, nature too will share his happy destiny. • In the Gospel for this Sunday (Luke 5, 1-11) St. Luke relates that, obeying the Lord's command, Peter cast his net into the sea, and in reward for his humility obtained a miraculous draught of fishes, and then saw himself entrusted with another ship and other nets. • Then Peter and his companions left their boat and definitely followed Our Lord, to throw out the nets of the Gospel to catch men, rescuing them from the devil's power. • It was from Peter's boat that Our Lord chose to preach; it was Simon Peter that He told to launch out in the deep, and it was he who, at the Master's word of command, laid down the nets which became so full that they broke. Finally, it was Peter who, overcome with astonishment and fear, adored His Master and was chosen by Him as a fisher of men. • "Certainly a new method of fishing", says St. John Chrysostom. "For fishers drew their fish from the water to kill them, but we cast our nets into the water and those whom we take are made alive." (St. Andrew Missal)

The farewell mass but praise God we get to keep Fr. Nader around till the end of the month! #prayforpriests #gannons #twinning #mybrotherforlife

The pictures include Zaid with a family of parishioners after Mass as well as with four religious sisters of the Missionaries of Charity following a procession for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. He is also pictured dressed as Pharaoh who enslaved the Israelites prior to their Exodus out of Egypt in the Old Testament during Vacation Bible School where Zaid led the Bible Adventures. And he is shown alongside Fr.

Today, July 1st is the feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus and the entire month is dedicated to this. This Feast was instituted by the saintly Pope Pius IX in gratitude for the restoration of Rome to the Holy See. It is important to appreciate this devotion because it reveals the extent of Our Lord’s love for us and how it saves us, as the litany says. If you would like to join us in this Litany on this great Feast Day today, here it is: Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us. God, the Father of Heaven, have mercy on us. God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us. God, the Holy Spirit, have mercy on us. Holy Trinity, One God, have mercy on us. Blood of Christ, only-begotten Son of the Eternal Father, *save us. (*after each line) Blood of Christ, Incarnate Word of God, Blood of Christ, of the New and Eternal Testament, Blood of Christ, falling upon the earth in the Agony, Blood of Christ, shed profusely in the Scourging, Blood of Christ, flowing forth in the Crowning with Thorns, Blood of Christ, poured out on the Cross, Blood of Christ, price of our salvation, Blood of Christ, without which there is no forgiveness, Blood of Christ, Eucharistic drink and refreshment of souls, Blood of Christ, stream of mercy, Blood of Christ, victor over demons, Blood of Christ, courage of martyrs, Blood of Christ, strength of confessors, Blood of Christ, bringing forth virgins, Blood of Christ, help of those in peril, Blood of Christ, relief of the burdened, Blood of Christ, solace in sorrow, Blood of Christ, hope of the penitent, Blood of Christ, consolation of the dying, Blood of Christ, peace and tenderness of hearts, Blood of Christ, pledge of Eternal Life, Blood of Christ, freeing souls from purgatory, Blood of Christ, most worthy of all glory and honor, Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Spare us, O Lord. Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Graciously hear us, O Lord. Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Have mercy on us. V. Thou hast redeemed us, O Lord, in Thy Blood. R. And made us, for our God,

We are so grateful for the good men who, first, said "yes" to God's call to the priesthood, and then again to the call to be Courage and EnCourage chaplains. Saint John Vianney, patron saint of parish priests, once said: “The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus. When you see a priest, think of our Lord Jesus Christ.” This is true, but we must also remember that our priests are human, subject to weakness and temptations, as well spiritual attacks from the devil who will stop at nothing to undermine the priest's service to the Church. Today, pray for a priest you know - your Courage or EnCourage chaplain, a pastor, a friend - and pray also for a priest who has no one to pray for him.

Today I'm so very grateful for the gift of the priesthood and most especially for FATHER Luke! What a gift your vocation is to Christ and His Church! 💚 As the same monk that carried the cross for my wedding procession did the same for your first Mass (and even one of the same songs!!) I was struck by the way the priestly and married vocations complement one another. 💚 Each is made up of little moments of ordinary moments, they are a deeper call to live our baptismal vows: to humility, obedience, and self gift. 💚 How appropriate that it's ordinary time - for it is in the ordinary that Jesus asks us to seek His face. 💚 Father, I pray that you continue to seek Him every day as you serve your brother monks and the Benedictine community! 💚 Pray for priests! To serve well they need Christ. They need grace. They need us. @kansasmonks #catholic #priest #ordination #mass #monk #kansasmonks #benedictine #blessing #prayforpriests #ordinarytime #vocation #vows
