Veni Veni Emmanuel


As Advent continues, the Diocese of Harrisburg had the annual Advent Prayer Service for Clergy today from 10 am - 3 pm.  Msgr. Mulligan of the Diocese of Allentown was the presenter followed by Liturgy of the Hours and lunch and time for confessions.

Next Wednesday, December 16th, the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy will have its monthly meeting at 2:30 pm at Mount Saint Mary Seminary, Emmittsburg, MD. Father Ron Gillis of the Personal Prelature of Opus Dei is speaking, followed by Eucharistic Holy Hour, Confessions, Vespers, and dinner for those who wish it.  OPEN TO ALL CATHOLIC CLERGY IN GOOD STANDING.

Ongoing spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation of the clergy is the goal of this national association of priests and deacons. Meeting once a month for a morning or afternoon to pray in common, read theological journals, papal encyclicals and magisterial writings all done in a fraternal setting. The other component is our national convocation which meets in Rome January 4th - 8th during the YEAR FOR PRIESTS.

Please pray for us.

Father John Trigilio

Pray pray for Priests, the devil is always looking to destroy the Church. the Priests are in the front lines of defending the Faith. Pray espeiallly to St. John Vianney, the Cure of Ars, patron of priests.

Dear Father,

I have read your blog for a bit now and am wondering about the subtitle of your blog, "opines of a cleric." This is hardly worth mentioning, but as far as I can tell, "opine" is not a noun. If you had intended to use it as a gerund (i.e., a verbal noun) it would be "opinings." I only ask because I find this interesting. Also, as a priest, I think it important that we be adroit with language.

Thank you for the fraternal correction.
