Two new Priests for the Holy Church and Miles Christi!

Just received this great news in my inbox from Miles Christi...

It is with great joy that we can share with you some wonderful news for the Holy Catholic Church and Miles Christi.

On Saturday, July 19, in Villa Elisa (Argentina), two of our Brothers, Deacon Charles and Deacon Patrick, will be ordained to the Holy Priesthood!

In order to express our joy and to be spiritually present at the transcendental moment of their lives, we would like to send them a Spiritual Bouquet from all those who would like to participate from the USA. We are asking for your prayers or offerings for these two new Priests, for their intentions and perseverance and for all their future apostolates helping souls draw closer to Christ and grow in holiness.

If you would like to participate, please respond to this email with the number of prayers or offerings you would like to commit to offer up for these two new Priests of God. It is not necessary for you to complete your commitment before they are ordained, but just a promise of your prayers would be sufficient.

If you have any questions please let us know. Your prayers really mean a lot not only to Deacons Charles and Patrick but to all of us in Miles Christi.

My sister-in-law supports our priest and bishop while driving around with a couple of Father Z's great bumper stickers. With vocations at our parish climbing and a close family friend joining a religious order she needed more...
