St. Gemma Galgani and The Year for Priests
Yesterday, on the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, began what our Holy Father has declared The Year for Priests. And I just found this little article on the internet on St. Gemma Galgani and her acts of reparation on behalf of priests and nuns who were not living out their vows. It is meaningful to me that my own Gemma will be born during The Year of Priests, and I hope she will grow up feeling a special responsibility for pray for the priesthood and for holy vocations.
