we pray that the Blessed Mother
wrap her mantle around your priests
and through her intercession
strengthen them for their ministry.
We pray that Mary will guide your priests
to follow her own words,
“Do whatever He tells you” (Jn 2:5).
May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph,
Mary’s most chaste spouse.
May the Blessed Mother’s own pierced heart
inspire them to embrace
all who suffer at the foot of the cross.
May your priests be holy,
filled with the fire of your love
seeking nothing but your greater glory
and the salvation of souls.
Saint John Vianney, pray for us.

Hey, i know you are on a silent retreat right now and i hope everything is going well. I was wondering if you would do me a favor. A classmate of mine, Bryan Mauk '04, was nominated for an award presented by People magazine for his work with the homeless in cleveland. If he wins he gets to represent the Cleveland Indians at the all-star game along with some other perks for his foundation. I was wondering if you would post this link on your blog. I know you have a lot of regular followers and it would mean a lot to me if you would ask them to vote for Bryan.I think this is a great and worthy cause, so I encourage all readers to follow this link and vote for Bryan Mauk!
