Priesthood Sunday in the Year of Faith

Catechism of the Catholic Church
No: 1120

The ordained ministry or ministerial priesthood is at the service of the baptismal priesthood. The ordained priesthood guarantees that it really is Christ who acts in the sacraments through the Holy Spirit for the Church. The saving mission entrusted by the Father to his incarnate Son was committed to the apostles and through them to their successors: they receive the Spirit of Jesus to act in his name and in his person. The ordained minister is the sacramental bond that ties the liturgical action to what the apostles said and did and, through them, to the words and actions of Christ, the source and foundation of the sacraments.

 Please pray for the following priests who were ordained in May for the Diocese of Cleveland:

                                                                  Fr. Peter Kovacina

                                                                     Fr. John Mullee

                                                                    Fr. Patrick Spicer

It is part of the vocation of Secular Carmelites to pray for seminarians, priests, and priestly vocations.  Let us remember to pray for all those called to ordained ministry on this Priesthood Sunday.

Peace be with you!
