Pray for all priests!

“Jesus loved us to the end, to the very limit, dying on the cross. We must have this same love which comes from within, from our union with Christ. Such love must be as normal to us as living and breathing.”   — Blessed Mother Teresa

I was recently at a Parish in Pennsylvania for a father-son ski retreat, and I was deeply edified by the pastor of this church. He is now well into his 70’s after close to 50 years of priestly ministry, he struggles with a limp and some health issues, but his sincere smile and love for Christ are burning as bright as ever. I am asked him how things were going, and he responded, “Fr. Michael, I am trying my best to serve the Lord.” Please pray for all priests…we all need your prayers!!
