A Grand Finale Planned for the Year for Priests


Pope_priestI enjoyed reading this announcement of the big splash being planned for the end of Pope Benedict XVI’s Year for Priests (reported by Catholic News Agency).  It seems that all of our wonderful priests, over 400,000 of them, will be invited to Rome to attend a special meeting.  Some critics are concerned that the absence of priests in our local parishes may be devastating, but I think this is a wonderful way to re-invigorate those who will be able to attend.  I wonder if my pastor needs someone to carry his luggage?
