Sanctify our Shepherds
Imagine that as you are leaving the confessional, the last thing the priest says is, “Please, pray for me.”
You’d probably be a little caught off guard, right? In Confession, there’s obviously a big focus on the individual, but we mustn't forget that every man that walks this earth is a sinner.
We’ve seen that when a priest falls into sin, the effects are massive. People get hurt, they’re misled, and many leave the Church altogether. What an opportunity for the Devil to corrupt one man and strike a blow to many. Priests are vital to our Church, and the Devil knows this.
We need holy priests, but we can’t expect priests to make themselves holy. They need grace and they need prayers — that’s where we come in.
Pray for your priests. Whether they’re traditional, liberal, or whatever, all priests need our prayers. Pray that God sanctifies our shepherds.
