World Priest Day 2012
I posted this over at my own blog, but thought it would be good to post here as well.
This Friday, June 15, 2012 is the Third Annual Rosary Rally for Priests. It is a day when priest around the world will be gathering at various shrines praying the Rosary for each other. The lay faithful are invited to join in as well. Here are some details and a link to the World Priest Day site.
Friday June 15, 2012 has been designated as World Priest Day by WorldPriest.com in partnership with the American Confraternity of Catholic Clergy. This date is also the feast of The Sacred Heart of Jesus. A Rosary Relay for priests has been organized. There will be 60 rosaries in 60 countries prayed throughout the day. The rosaries are being prayed by priests for priests.
We, as the faithful, can join in this relay right in our own homes. The World Priest Day site has the schedule of times and locations where each of the rosaries will be prayed. The particular Mysteries being prayed as well as the intentions are listed under each location.
Now more than ever, our priests need our prayers and our support. As we celebrate the feast dedicated to Our Lord's Sacred Heart, let us entrust our priests to His heart through through our Blessed Mother and the Rosary.
