Order of Melchizedek Blog Roll

I've added yet another blogger from the Order of Melchizedek to my blog roll. Welcome to Fr. Boyle from South Ashford, England blogging at South Ashford Priest!

Something I try and practice while surfing St. Blog's is to stop and pray particularly for the clergy when visiting their blogs. If I've got time to spend surfing the Internet, I definitely have time to say a couple prayers for these priests. I suggest that others take up this idea of supporting our priests in prayer.

Let's see. . . who shall we be praying for off my blog roll?

Fr. Martin Fox at Bonfire of the Vanities
Fr. Shane Tharp and Fr. Stephen Hamilton at Catholic Ragemonkey
Fr. Jim Tucker at Dappled Things
Fr. LW Gonzales Peoria at Fifty Sophomoric Summers
Fr. Tim Finigan at The Hermeneutic of Continuity
Fr. Stephanos, O.S.B. at Me Monk. Me Meander. and One Monk
(Great daily homilies at One Monk by the way!)
Fr. John Boyle at South Ashford Priest
Fr. Erik Richtsteig at Orthometer
Fr. Tom Dowd at Waiting in Joyful Hope

It doesn't take much time at all to say at least a short prayer for each of these clergy when you visit their blogs. Like all priests, they need our prayers!

God our Father, you reveal your omnipotence in the superabundance of your mercy, poured forth into the world through the sacred wounds of your Son and our Redeemer. We ardently pray that your sacred ministers may be clear reflections of your mercy. May they, with every word and deed of their life, illumine humanity, disoriented by sin, and bring it back to you, who are Love. We ask this, Father, through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever.
