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.
