"The life of a priest is an Advent
bringing forth the Incarnation of souls."
- St Elizabeth of the Trinity
PRAYER FOR HOLY PRIESTS (St Charles Borromeo)
O Holy Mother of God, pray for the priests your Son has chosen to serve the Church. Help them, by your intercession, to be holy, zealous and chaste. Make them models of virtue in the service of God’s people. Help them to be prayerful in meditations, efficacious in preaching, and zealous in the daily offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Help them administer the sacraments with joy.
Let us generously remember our priests in daily prayer -
especially in this holy Advent season.
Happy St Nicholas Day!
you got a few goodies
in your shoes this morning!

"The giver of every good and perfect gift has called upon us to mimic
God's giving, by grace, through faith, and this is not of ourselves."
- St Nicholas of Myra (+343)
St Nicholas, pray for us!
