How very cool!

I returned to the Catholic Church full force during the year of Jubilee in 2000.

My son is entering seminary in 2010, right after the end of the year of the priest.

We like to do things during memorable occasions I guess :)

Overview

"Faithfulness of Christ, faithfulness of priests" is the theme of the Year for Priests announced on March 16, 2009, by the Holy Father. The Pope inaugurated the Year on June 19, the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, presiding at Vespers in St. Peter's Basilica where the relics of the saintly 'Cure of Ars' were brought for the occasion by Bishop Guy Bagnard of Belley-Ars, France. He will close the year on June 19, 2010, at a "World Meeting of Priests" in St. Peter's Square.

During the course of the Year, Benedict XVI will proclaim St. Jean Marie Vianney as patron saint of all the priests of the world. A "Directory for Confessors and Spiritual Directors" will also be published, as will a collection of texts by the Supreme Pontiff on essential aspects of the life and mission of priests in our time.

The Congregation for the Clergy, together with diocesan ordinaries and superiors of religious institutes, will undertake to promote and coordinate the various spiritual and pastoral initiatives which are being organised to highlight the role and mission of the clergy in the Church and in modern society, and the need to intensify the permanent formation of priests, associating it with that of seminarians.

Letter to Clergy for the Year for Priests Benedict XVI

Letter on the Occasion of the World Day of Prayer for the Sacntification of Priests — Congregation for the Clergy

A special indulgence has been granted by the Apostolic Penitentiary for those who attend Mass and offer prayers to Jesus Christ the Eternal High Priest, for the priests of the Church during this year.



“As the Father has sent me, I also send you" (Jn 20:21)."

"Priestly spirituality requires a climate of proximity to the Lord Jesus Christ, of friendship and personal encounter with Him, of 'shared' ministerial mission, of love for and service to, His Person in the 'person' of His Body and Spouse which is the Church. To live the Church and give oneself to her ministerial service implies a profound love for the Lord Jesus Christ." — Priest, Pastor And Leader Of The Parish Community

Priest Saints

The priestly ministers of Jesus Christ, invested with the character and grace of the Sacrament of Orders, and constituted witnesses and ministers of divine mercy, voluntarily undertake to serve all in the Church.

Please post information about other bishops, priests on this thread. Thanks.

"There is one final motive which can be regarded as comprising all the others. If the priest is called 'another Christ' and is truly such by reason of his sharing in Christ's power, should he not also become and be recognized as another Christ through imitation of Christ's deeds? Let it be our principal study to meditate upon the life of Jesus Christ." Haerent Animo, Pius X

Saint John Vianney, the Cure of Ars
Pastor’s Column
19th Sunday Ordinary Time
August 9, 2009
 
 
Saint John Vianney, whose feast day is August 4, has been made the patron saint of all priests. Towards the end of his life he was in such demand that he spent up to 16 hours a day hearing confessions. For this week’s column I wish to offer a small selection of his words, that he might speak to us today.
                                                                             Father Gary
 
In your work, offer your difficulties and troubles quite simply to God…. And you will find that his blessing will rest upon you and all that you do.
 
We ought to in the morning on awakening to offer to God our heart, our mind, out thoughts, our words, our actions, our whole selves, to serve for his glory alone.
 
Our prayer is an incense which God receives with extreme pleasure.
 
If you really love God, you will not be content with avoiding big sins. You will regard as hateful anything which could be even a little displeasing to him.
 
Fear nothing but sin and displeasing God.
 
If we have a burden to carry, let us promptly remember that we are following Jesus Christ carrying his cross; let us unite our sufferings to those of our divine savior.
 
Alas! How many neglect or omit their spiritual duties just as easily as they will take a glass of wine. They will not do things unless they are in the modd, or put themselves to any inconvenience.
 
To pray well we need not speak much.
 
Ask our Lord for the grace to think only of him and to desire only to please him in all you do for your whole life.
 
Those who go often to Mass during the week, do their work very much better than those who, for want of faith, think they have no time.
 
We can, if we will, become a saint, for God will never refuse to help us to do so.

Jesus. High Priest
 

The Year of the Priest

We thank you, God our Father, for those who have responded to your call to priestly ministry.

Accept this prayer we offer on their behalf: Fill your priests with the sure knowledge of your love.

Open their hearts to the power and consolation of the Holy Spirit.

Lead them to new depths of union with your Son.

Increase in them profound faith in the Sacraments they celebrate as they nourish, strengthen and heal us.

Lord Jesus Christ, grant that these, your priests, may inspire us to strive for holiness by the power of their example, as men of prayer who ponder your word and follow your will.

O Mary, Mother of Christ and our mother, guard with your maternal care these chosen ones, so dear to the Heart of your Son.

Intercede for our priests, that offering the Sacrifice of your Son, they may be conformed more each day to the image of your Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Saint John Vianney, universal patron of priests, pray for us and our priests
