Generation X~er Turned Catholic Priest
Ain't Talkin' "Bout Love is Fr. John Cihak's story of his road to the priesthood. It is a story of stark contrast; he went from singer in a rock band to the priesthood. Fr.Cihak says that he isn't one of those priests who knew he had a calling from a very young age. He had his ideas about where his life would go, a family and being a doctor, and well, God had His own plans for this man! Follow the link with article's title to read Father's whole story.
Let us continue to pray for all our priests.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
