I’m a priest and I’m nothing special. “God chooses the weak and makes them strong” (1Cor 1). I know this is true. Priests need prayer, support, encouragement.
Today’s Mass begins:
The Good Shepherd has risen,
who laid down his life for his sheep
and willingly died for his flock, alleluia.
St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) noted:
The spiritual health of the flock is more important than the physical health of the shepherd.
If this is true – and it is – then priests need our prayer.
In praying for them, we pray for ourselves. It is win win.
