[Dcn Alex Colautti, CC will be ordained ot the priesthood on May 5. We will be praying a Novena for him as he makes his final preparations for his ordination. We will be praying a Novena to St. John Vianney, The Curé of Ars, Patron Saint of Priests.]
Saint John Marie Baptist Vianney because of your love of God you showed great charity towards your neighbor. You could not preach on the Love of God without burning tears of love. During your last years, it seemed as though you could not talk about anything else or live for anything else. Thus you sacrificed yourself to your neighbor by consoling, absolving and sanctifying them to the limits of your strength.
“Your charity inspires me to greater love of God, a love which is shown more by acts then by words. Help me to love my neighbor generously as Christ loves them.”
Holy Priest of Ars, I have confidence in your intercession. Pray for Dcn. Alex Coluatti, CC as he prepares for his priestly ordination on May 5.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
