A Message of Love for All Priests
Please print poem "Father, Father Never Doubt" and also the Letter of Appreciation and give this to all priests as an encouragement. "Father, Father Never Doubt" was received on August 13, 1990 from Our Mother to Claire Rose for a priest on his birthday.
A MESSAGE OF LOVE FOR ALL PRIESTS
Father, Father never doubt,
Your vocation as a priest.
For it is a treasure without measure.
A treasure of the greatest kind.
One that no one can ever find,
Tho' they dig and seek and pine.
For it is given as a gift,
From one who lives on high,
One who is Divine.
You are chosen from among all men,
To offer sacrifice for all mankind.
A sacrifice-the greatest One,
To change some bread into His Body,
And then to take a cup of wine,
A simple cup of wine
To change into His blood,
The real Blood of the Son Divine!
What a gift He's given you.
What a gift from such a King!
The Only King! And you...O priest
Are His greatest treasure,
His royal representative
His truly chosen one.
The Royal Order of the Priesthood
Come down from Christ
To touch you,
Chosen one chosen priest...
A royal priest forever!
Holy Thursday 2002
We just want to tell you that we love you, that we appreciate all you do. The many things you do, seen and unseen, for all of us.
You are always there for us with steadfast love when we need you, from the moment of our birth, through our whole life until you bless us in our graves and pray us through Purgatory.
So many times your giving of self goes unnoticed. So many times we fail to appreciate you and thank you for spending your life in loving and serving us.
Your healing and compassionate heart brings us peace in holy confession. Your holy consecrated hands bring our Lord Jesus to us each and every day in Holy Eucharist. Your gentle tender heart rejoices with us in joyful times and comforts us in times of suffering and sorrow. In everything you say and do, you truly represent Jesus to us.
So we just want to tell you what you mean to us, how very much we love and appreciate you and to say:
Thank you for being a priest!
We love you! Pray for us!
As we will always pray for you!
