Chances are, more than one priest has made a significant effect on your life.
One probably baptized you. One heard your first (and subsequent!) confessions. One gave you your First Holy Communion.
Maybe you were married – by a priest. Has a priest ever visited you in the hospital? Prayed for you? Said the funeral mass for someone you loved?
Perhaps you’ve had the good fortune of forming a friendship with a priest. You might’ve golfed with one, or had a beer with one, or maybe gone on a mission trip with one.
Priests are so important in the lives of the Catholic people, and so often all we do is complain about them. This Sunday, October 25 is “Priest Sunday” – the perfect opportunity to say thank you to the priests in your life.
They need not our condemnation and criticism, but our prayers and support.
