“… I always pray for Fr. XXX and-”
“Fr. XXX XXXXXXXX?” he asked, almost surprised, leaning in to be sure if he heard correctly.
He withdrew, put his head down, held his hands together, and said with a very gentle smile, “Us priest really appreciate prayers.”
It’s moments like these that I am reminded of how important prayer really is.
