New York – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced today that Priests for Life is inviting the laity to prepare a massive spiritual bouquet which will be presented this Fall to all the priests of the country.

 The faithful are invited to pledge prayers, rosaries, chaplets, holy hours, and sacrifices for priests, that they may be protected in body and spirit, and may grow in holiness and in the fruitfulness of their ministry.

 This can be done at http://www.yearofpriests.org/.

 “Priests are heralds of the Gospel of Life, and are called to stir up the gifts of God’s people to build the culture of life. In our day, when restoring protection for the right to life is the top moral imperative, the Catholic faithful thirst in a particular way for the leadership of priests in this arena, and eagerly pray for it,” Fr. Pavone added.

 Along with pledging a spiritual bouquet, people are invited to share their stories about their favorite priests.
