Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival

Visit Rann’s blog, This That and the Other Thing, each Sunday for Sunday Snippets, where yours truly and some other Catholic bloggers post links to their sites. Or if you’re a Catholic blogger, be sure to add a link to your blog.

Here are my posts from the past week:

Last June, Pope Benedict declared a “Year for Priests,” which will end next Sunday. At my parish, we have been praying a special prayer for priests at the end of each Sunday mass. But even though the Year for Priests is ending, don’t forget to keep our priests in prayer! They certainly need all the support they can get. Here is a prayer taken from a devotional booklet:

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for Your lonely and desolate priests; for Your young priests; for Your dying priests; for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.

But above all I recommend to You the priests dearest to me; the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way. O Jesus, keep them close to Your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.

May you have a restful Sunday and a blessed week!
