Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.
(And one of these days I'll fix the template and add a Search feature. :-P)

Congrats to the new Father Charles! 

Congratulations to and prayers for Father Charles (OFM Cap.) on his recent ordination to the priesthood!

Saint Faustina's Prayer For Holy Church and for Priests
O my Jesus, I beg You on behalf of the whole Church:
Grant it love and the light of Your Spirit and give power to the words of priests so that hardened hearts might be brought to repentance and return to You, O Lord.

Lord, give us holy priests; You Yourself maintain them in holiness.
O Divine and Great High Priest, may the power of Your mercy accompany them everywhere and protect them from the devil's traps and snares which are continually being set for the souls of priests.
May the power of Your mercy, O Lord, shatter and bring to naught all that might tarnish the sanctity of priests, for You can do all things.
I ask You, Jesus, for a special blessing and for light for the priests before whom I will make my confessions throughout my lifetime.
