Lord Jesus, we lift up to you our dear shepherd and all other priests. We know that in their closeness to you their hearts shall be molded into yours. We humbly ask for the grace of healing and renewal. We thank you for our good, holy and dedicated priests. We remember in a special way the priests who baptized us, the priests who heard our confessions, who journeyed with our family in the best and worst of times, who guided and encouraged us, who shared with us your Body and Blood. They are your wonderful gifts to us. We thank you for them. We beg you to give them more courage to endure the cross for you. Stay close to them and keep them safe in your embrace. Amen.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
