[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.]
O Holy Priest of Ars, your precious remains are contained in a magnificent reliquary, the donation from the priests of France. But this earthly glory is only a very pale image of the unspeakable glory which you are enjoying with God. During the time you were on earth, you used to repeat in your dejected hours, 'one will rest in the other life." It is done, you are in eternal peace, and eternal happiness.
I desire to follow you one day. Until then, I hear you saying to me: "You should work and fight as long as you are in the world."
“Teach me then to work for the salvation of my soul, to spread the good news and good example and to do good towards those around me in order that I will receive the happiness of the Elect with you.”
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
