The World Needs Heroes

Don't miss these two very short videos from the Diocese of New York. The first one is a NYPRIEST Theatrical Trailer that will be shown in select New York Theatres to promote the NYPRIEST campaign. "The aim of the campaign is to build up a "Culture of Vocations" in the Archdiocese of New York, to increase awareness of the diocesan priesthood and to draw young men whom God is calling to respond generously to service in the Church as Priests after the Heart of Jesus Christ."

In the beautiful video below, Archbishop Timothy Dolan says to five newly ordained priests , "May God who has begun this good work in you now bring it to fulfillment."

Check out the Diocese of New York 's impressive vocations website! It is worth a look even if you only take time to see the beautiful pictures on the home page (wait a second to see the many inspiring images as they change). What an outstanding job they have done. May they be blessed with an abundance of new vocations!

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
