| | Opus Bono Sacerdotii: Help Priests Who Have No Where Else to Turn
I have posted before about the Opus Bono Sacerdotii
. They help priests who have no one else to whom they can turn. I know the people who started this organization and I have the highest confidence in them. I have contributed.
This appeal can by email with a personal request to post it from one of the organizers:
Please read below:
ďIím 82 years old and have been a Catholic priest for a very long time. I am a priest in good standing and have been retired for some time now. Because of my infirmities (I am also blind in one eye), I am no longer able to offer Mass or administer the sacraments at the local parishes where I would receive a stipend to help supplement my Social Security of $670. I am paying rent on a small apartment. We are a small diocese and have no money to give priests like me who canít work anymore at the parishes.

The more I follow the online discussions ... the more I follow the debates and disagreements in the Church about administrative unity, or the concerns expressed about the moral or personal or administrative or leadership failings of the bishops or the clergy, the more I become convinced that whatever might be the truth of these concerns, ALL of this is simply a distraction. No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.
