Happy 83rd Birthday, Pope Francis!!

Ad multos annos!

Vatican News

Today, December 13th, is the 50th anniversary of Pope Francis' ordination to the priesthood.

Let us join in prayer today for our Holy Father:

LATIN

V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco
R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]

Pater noster. Ave Maria.

Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum Franciscum, quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cm grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.

ENGLISH:

V. Let us pray for Francis, our Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]

Our Father. Hail Mary.

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant Francis, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Archdiocese of San Francisco

Father of mercy,
we come before you with gratitude
for the fifty years of priesthood of Pope Francis,
whom you have made Peter’s successor.
Support him with the Spirit’s gifts,
so that he can continue to preach the Gospel with priestly zeal
and lead the Church with wisdom and strength and courage.
May his example of long and faithful service
be an inspiration to your priests and to all your faithful.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Vianney Vocations

O Mary, who raised your Divine Son with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, intercede for all young people, especially those clouded by doubt about their vocations. May the light of grace pierce their hearts so they may answer your Son’s call, especially those whom He is inviting to the priesthood and consecrated life. Amen

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

Blessed Virgin Mary, Patroness of the Americas, pray for us! #vocations

Archdiocese of San Francisco

Fr. Cameron Faller is back for #Sanctify this week to set us firmly in the Advent season. May yours be blessed. Have a great weekend.

[12/06/19]   From today's office of readings:

"Insignificant man, escape from your everyday business for a short while, hide for a moment from your restless thoughts. Break off from your cares and troubles and be less concerned about your tasks and labors. Make a little time for God and rest a while in him.

Enter into your mind’s inner chamber. Shut out everything but God and whatever helps you to seek him; and when you have shut the door, look for him. Speak now to God and say with your whole heart: I seek your face; your face, Lord, I desire."

From the Proslogion by Saint Anselm, bishop
(Cap.1: Opera Omnia, Edit. Schmitt, Secovii, 1938, 1, 97-100)

[12/05/19]   "Trust in the Lord forever!
For the Lord is an eternal Rock." Isaiah 26:4

Seminarian Jerick Rea joins us to talk about hearing his call to the priesthood. He tells us that despite working a high paying job in the tech industry and having practically everything he wanted, he was still unfulfilled. So he gave up comfort and luxury to answer the call to the priesthood. #Prayforvocations #Prayforpriests and #Prayforourseminarians

Two Things to Do While You’re Discerning

Discovering your true vocation is not easy. It takes time, along with a lot of soul-searching and prayer. Check out this month's eNewsletter for two things to do while you are discerning.

clt918460.benchurl.com For years, Jacob has thought about being a priest. Sometimes it has been just a passing thought. A few times, especially during Mass, it’s been a very strong attraction. And sometimes—especially when he is dating—the thought seems to be altogether absent.
