Sunday in the Year for Priests

He would never lose his fear of being a bad strong was this obsession, this sentiment of his unworthiness, that one fine day Fr. Mandy found him on his knees in a wood known as "Pope Joan's wood," weeping bitterly and crying out in a loud voice:
"My God, convert my parish!..."

O my dear parishioners, let us strive to go to heaven! There we shall see God. How happy we shall be! And we shall go there all together in a procession if the parish becomes virtuous, your pastor leading the way!"
From the Remarkable Cure of Ars by Michel de Saint Pierre

Peace be with you!
