“You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” ~1 Peter 2:5
In union with Christ, the priest offers the sacrifice of His entire life in the service of God and of the Church. As sponsors of priests we wish to support them in their lives of sacrifice. We can do this best by offering prayer for them and sacrifices of our own. We can make any number of sacrifices on a daily basis, such as:
- Give up creamer or sugar in our coffee
- Say an extra decade of a rosary
. Having an adopted priest is an incentive to look for, accept, and offer those sacrifices and hardships that present themselves to us with love and generosity in the name of Christ. We may also resolve to make sacrifices of our choosing with the intention of offering these for and with priests.
