More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Today we pray especially for our priests
H/T to Christine Niles for flagging this up:
June 15th is World Priest Day.
Let us pray for our priests, who are at the front lines of battle every day, and whom the enemy attacks with all his might.
I and all the priests and deacons of the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy enthusiastically support and deeply appreciate the hard work and efforts of WorldPriest.com in sponsoring World Priest Day and the Rosary Relay for Priests on June 15. It is with enormous gratitude that prayers for priests are being said around the world. We priests NEED and WANT these prayers and we pray for ourselves so we can better minister to Holy Mother Church and all her children.
