"The Catholic priesthood must have the spirit of discipline, or, to use a more deeply Christian word, obedience. It is obedience which binds together all ranks into the harmony of the Churchʼs Hierarchy."
-- Pope Pius XI (On the Catholic Priesthood)
For My Sick Pastor
Divine Savior Jesus Christ, during Thine earthly sojourn Thou didst bring comfort and healing to so many who were sick. Behold, Thy friend whom Thou lovest is sick. I beg of Thee to comfort and bring relief to my sick pastor. Send him an angel to strengthen him. Restore him to health, if it be Thy holy will.
For him I offer to Thee all the prayers and good works of this day, and I beseech Thee to bear and answer my prayer. Amen
