I received an appeal from Opus Bono Sacerdotii, an organization which gives help to priests who are in difficulties.
They wrote saying:
We have a dozen priests we cannot help at this time who need your prayers.
They are in dire need of about $150 per month to supplement their income for food and utilities.
If it’s not too much to ask, would you please, please consider a small donation as part of your Lenten alms giving to help us meet the needs of these suffering priests? We simply do not have the additional funds at this time.
The need is urgent!
Currently we care for over a thousand Catholic priests in the United States.

or mail your donation to P.O. Box 663, Oxford, MI 4837
May Our Lady of Priests be your health and your protection.
Consider what many priests, who have little or no family, go through when they are in a jam. Their dioceses can turn on them or just dump them. Priests are easy targets. Some priests get into trouble and – especially when innocent and perhaps falsely accused – don’t know what to do because they are afraid of the public scandal or consequences. Some priests who have personal problems just don’t know where to turn or don’t have the resources to get help.
Priests are imperfect sinners, like you are, everyone is. But priests confect the Eucharist and give you Christ’s Body and Blood. They forgive your sins and anoint you when you are dying.
Please, if you have a heart for priests, consider making a donation to them.
