Priestly Role Models

Sedes Sapientiae, ora pro nobis.

Our parish has been blessed with a second priest, Fr. Harkins. His presence has inspired my two youngest sons to pretend to be priests and "offer" Mass. They've been dressing up, cutting "hosts" from printer paper, ringing their little bell, and using their child-size thurible. The other day, Finnian came to me and said, "Mommy, I am Fr. Saguto and Patrick is Fr. Harkins." I smiled and thought to myself, "Imitation is truly the best form of flattery. I pray that if God calls you to be a priest, you answer His call and become a holy and faithful  priest." We are very thankful that our boys have such great role models at our parish.

O Mary, Queen of the clergy, pray for us; obtain for us many holy priests.

  1. Two years ago, our parish received a young, newly ordained priest who has proven to be a tremendous blessing to everyone. Seeing a young man choose this path is such an inspiration to the boys in the school and is rare.

    Thank you for the encouragement to pray. Sometimes I need others' ideas to get me started on something worthwhile. Sometimes I am too involved in accomplishing things that do not last...I appreciate it, Christine.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
