Priest as Man of Prayer

Join us tomorrow at 8:40 AM on 740 AM Sacred Heart Radio for our discussion of Pope John Paul's 1982 Letter to Priests, which isn't actually a letter but is more along the lines of a prayer:

This year I am not writing you a letter. Instead I am sending you the text of a prayer dictated by faith and coming from my heart, so as to share with you in offering it to Christ on the birthday of my priesthood and yours, and to suggest a shared meditation in the light and with the support of this prayer.
May each one of you rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of hands (cf. 2 Tim 1:6), and may you experience with renewed fervour the joy of having given yourselves totally to Christ.
