"Our Lady loves everyone with a most tender love, but She has a particular predilection for priests who are the living image of Jesus Christ."
-- Pope Pius XII (Menti Nostrae)
Our Lady of North Carolina
O Holy Family of Nazareth, community of love of Jesus, to Thee, we entrust in a special way our Bishop and the priests of our diocese. Strengthen their faith and love of our Blessed Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament, so that they may turn to Him for the grace they need to live a life faithful to their calling.
Our Lady of North Carolina, increase the ranks of our priests by inspiring our young people to be more generous in their response to serve Our Blessed Lord in the priesthood and in religious life. Amen
