*Prayer for Priests..........February 20



Prayer for Priests

..........Give us truly holy priests who,
inflamed with the fire of Thy divine love,
seek nothing but Thy greater glory
and the salvation of our souls.

And thou, Mary, good Mother of priests,
help all priests in their trials and difficulties
and with the loving hand of a Mother,
guide them through the changes of their holy vocation.

Amen

Latin words mean, "You are a priest for ever."

ohn - Thank you again for your translations for the blog. I'm sure there are many who truly appreciate what you add to our enjoyment.


Ally - Thank you...I hope you do also. We are getting MORE snow :-)

I too give thanks for the translations, as well as the beautiful cards.

But I think it is a commentary (not a criticism or a condemnation) on how the world has changed in the last sixty years that Latin has become one of the languages that needs translation.

Irene - Great point about the lack of Latin study. My husband studied Latin and French. I only studied Spanish and no Latin....and that was a long, long, time ago. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
