[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, a witness of your life made this magnificent praise of you: "We would have taken him for an angel in a mortal body." You so edified others: the modesty and the exquisite purity radiated from your body. With such charm and with such enthusiasm you preached to others about these beautiful virtues which you said resembled the perfume of a vineyard in bloom.
“Please I beg you to join your entreaties to those of Mary Immaculate and Saint Philomenain order that I guard always, as God asks me, the purity of my heart. You, who have directed so many souls towards the heights of virtue, defend me in temptations and obtain for me the strength to conquer 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
