They Are Out There Praying For Us...
I found this article over at Catholic News Agency which linked to a You Tube video that shows an elderly priest entering a church, rosary in hand, while young people talk about the priesthood and what it means to them. It is very moving to see young people talk about our priests in such a positive manner, especially when there are so many attacks from today's media. Yes, there are a few who have made grievous mistakes, but the vast majority are true servants of God.
As this Year for Priests comes to a close, I thought this a fitting tribute to all our priests who are fighting on the front lines for our salvation. The article in the link above explains the development of this series on You Tube called May Feelings. This video is the third installment in the series.
Watch the video, then go pray a rosary for a priest.
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.
