The Year of the Priest

Recently, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI declared the "year of the priest," beginning on the feast of the Sacred Heart (the 19th of June this year), and ending on the same observance in 2010 (the 11th of June). Much will be written about the meaning of the Catholic priesthood in the weeks and months to come, some of it here.

But for now, I've received an advert from a group in Ireland, namely Saint Conleth's Catholic Heritage Association, which has asked me to alert readers of two forthcoming Traditional Latin Masses for the coming Holy Year; one in Ballymany on September 4, the other in Rathangan on October 31 (photo at left).

So, there it is. Memento.
