Cardinal Mauro Piacenza: Strengthening the Priesthood

“In general, between priests there is a lot of dedication to duty and pastoral life. There is a strong awareness of their identity, the need for prayer, and that Church is guided by the Holy Spirit. We must make ourselves available to grow with the Lord. In other words, to have a smaller role, less feverish and with more confidence in the Lord.”

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.
