Pray for our Priests: November

PRAYER FOR OUR PRIESTS: Lord Jesus Christ, You love Your church and those called to share Your priesthood! With our love and prayers, we join You in asking our Heavenly Father to continue to pour out His gifts of holiness, compassion and ardent zeal on your priests everywhere. Inspire each of them to offer his life as an “Ambassador of Christ”, bringing reconciliation and healing to the world. Mary, Mother of all Priests, inspire us to live in peace and joy and pray this prayer with us. Amen

Spread the love

All Saints and All Souls

Today, Sunday, we celebrate All Saints Day, and tomorrow All Souls Day. We are enjoying a time of remembrance in our church. It always strikes me as appropriate for late autumn, as the days get darker, we start to look toward the end of the calendar year and tend to be more melancholic.

Most, if not all, will say, thank God that 2020 is going to come to an end. An annus horribilis if ever there was one!

Today and tomorrow we give thanks for those who have gone before us, whether saintly or not. The Feast of All Saints’ is the day on which we celebrate all the saints, known and unknown. It was Pope Gregory III (731-741) who named November 1 as the common date to celebrate the saints.
