The Holy Father will celebrate the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on December 13. In honor of Pope Francis and in celebration of his service to the Church, here are two petitions to offer:

  • For our Holy Father Pope Francis as we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood, that Jesus the High Priest will continue to renew, increase, and strengthen in him the graces received at ordination as he carries out his sacred ministry in the Holy Church. 
  • That the example of the many years of faithful priesthood of Pope Francis will be a source of inspiration for all priests, and awaken in young people their own call to service in the Church for the salvation of souls.
