Telling the Good Tidings: Personal Reflections on the Priesthood

By Father Lawrence C. Brennan

Linda Oppelt 0 240 Article rating: No rating

I was ordained a priest on Dec. 18, 1976.  It was the most precious Christmas gift I have ever received. For me, it culminated 13½ years of priestly formation: that is, personal and spiritual growth, academic study, and field education. I was blessed to have good teachers and mentors. I am still friends today with many of the men who were in the seminary with me, both ordained and lay. Some of them have been sixty years a friend.

Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament is present, though hidden, in every tabernacle in every Catholic church. Within the Diocese of Colorado Springs, the visible Eucharistic Presence of Jesus in a monstrance is available in many locations, days and times for adoration and prayer. What follows is an overview of opportunities for this increasingly popular and highly recommended devotion. Availability differs from parish to parish, ranging from perpetual (24/7) to one or two hours per week or month.
