[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 Mary Baptist Vianney, you were so adamant against sin, yet so sympathetic and so ready to welcome the sinner. I come to you today as if you were still alive, as if I were kneeling at your feet and you could hear me. Bend towards me, listen to the repentant confidence for the weaknesses and miserable deeds of mine.
“Priest of the Lord, inexhaustible Confessor, obtain for me the horror for sin. You wanted us first to avoid the occasion of sin. I want to take your advice and make the resolution to break bad habits and to avoid the dangerous occasions of sin. Help me today to examine my conscience.”
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
