Thank a priest!

Sub Tuum.

This is a day especially dear to priests. It is the feast of Saint John Vianney, patron Saint of parochial clergy. So, it is a good day to remember all that priests have done for you and where your life would be without them. Priests offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and convey the saving graces of the sacraments to the people. Flowing from that Sacrifice on the altar, priest provide you counsel, visit you in the hospital when you are sick, educate you and your children, help you learn about yourself and grow as a child of God, and so much more. Make a point today to thank a priest and to thank God for giving us priests.

May God bless you all.
