Priesthood is a gift, not a job, pope says

cruxnow.com Being a priest is not a job or fulfilling an employment contract but is a gift from God that should be contemplated and treasured as such, Pope Francis said.

The job of a priest can be exhausting, demanding and thankless. Although they might seem like superheroes, our priests need us to support, help and encourage them. Here are 7 ways you and I can help our priests in their mission:

1. Pray for Them

Pray a daily Rosary for your parish priest and encourage others to pray with you. Contact your priest and let him know that you are supporting him through prayer.

2. Live in Unity

Take an active role in your parish community. Attend Mass weekly and become a good steward by offering your gifts of time and talent. Attend parish sponsored events and/or support your parish financially.

3. Manage Your Expectations

Remember your pastor and parish priests are only human and while they would like to be present to support all parish happenings and family celebrations, this may be impossible. Be accepting of your priests. Recognize their individual gifts to the parish. Help your priests by informing them of illnesses and special needs within your community.

4. Avoid Gossip

Come to the banquet of the Lord with a positive attitude and avoid negative talk that may only lead to misunderstandings. Be mindful of how you speak about your parish priest with others, especially around children. If you have a disagreement with your parish priest that cannot be resolved through prayer, honestly and respectfully discuss it with him in private.

5. Appreciate Your Priests

We all need positive encouragement and priests need affirmation too. Tell your priest when you enjoy a homily. Thank him for bringing Jesus to you. Drop him a note or card to thank him for his dedication to the Lord and the Catholic Church.

6. Encourage Vocations to the Priesthood and
Consecrated Life

Help your priests by praying for an increase of vocations. Teach your children and grandchildren to be open to the Holy Spirit and invite young men and women to consider religious life as a vocation. Encourage and support seminaries by spiritually adopting a seminarian. Volunteer your time with the youth of your parish. Prayerfully support the programs offered by the Office of Vocations.

7. Support the Archbishop-Be Obedient

Be a good and faithful steward of the Catholic faith by respecting and supporting decisions from the Archbishop and the Pope. By respecting the authority of the Pope and the Archbishop, you are helping make the job of your parish priest easier. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, on your own intelligence rely not; in all ways be mindful of Him, and He will make straight your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6). God’s ways are higher than ours. Isaiah 55:8-9 says, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. As the heavens are above the earth, so are my ways above your ways and my thoughts above your thoughts".

Ugh: A #FilipinoAmerican family was told to "go back to your country," this time at Lucky Supermarkets in #DalyCity, CA.

A woman begins harassing the family (including their 5 year old) in the checkout line. It's amazing she feels entitled to spew racial hatred directly, loudly and publicly. We know this happens all the time, across America, but let's spread this to increase awareness.

It'd be painful to watch if it wasn't so funny.

[04/22/18]   A priest gets a haircut in the barbershop. When he is about to pay, the barber says, "Father, you're our pastor, a man of the cloth. Your haircut is free. Go in peace!” The priest profusely thanks the barber and leaves. The next day, the barber is surprised to see 12 gold coins magically appearing on the doorstep of his shop.

A week after, a Jewish Rabbi comes in to have his beard trimmed, and when he goes to the cashier to pay, the barber tells him, "Please, no money. You're a spiritual leader of the Jewish people. Shalom!" The next day, 12 diamonds appear on the doorstep of the shop.

The following week, the town mayor comes in, gets a haircut, goes to pay and the barber says, "No, mayor, you are a good man, the leader of this town. I can't take any money from you. Have a nice day!" The next day, magically appearing on the doorstep of the barbershop are the 12 town councilors – waiting for a free haircut!
