World at prayer for priests

2011-07-01 Vatican Radio

Friday, July 1st, 2011 marks the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus – a feast that since 2002 has also been the World Day of Prayer for Priests. The founder and president of the Christopher Inn International, Joan Johnson was recently in Rome to present the CI International project, which is for a completely lay-funded and operated house of retreat and ongoing formation for Catholic clergy from throughout the world. Chris Altieri asked Joan to share her thoughts about why it is important for laity to support priests with prayer.
