[quote=mkw]Out of a parish of around 600, we average about 35 people at the Stations.
We might get more to come if Father would attend, but he is quick to point out that Fridays are HIS DAY OFF. :mad: Lay people do all the work and they do a fantastic job, but what we really need is the “head man” to show up at least for some of them.
Forgive my ignorance but I’m a new Catholic and still learning. Do all diocesan priests have a day off? Assuming they do, which seems only right to me since we are all commanded to rest one day a week, why would you want to deprive him of his day off?
I pray that we will all love, support and pray for our priests more. I have developed such a tremendous respect for my pastor and am awed and gratified at the responsibilities he has willingly taken on to serve us all. Perhaps a bit more gratitude might be in order and a little less criticism…
In His love,
