Today marks the 36th Anniversary of Dom Antony Tumelty’s ordination to the Sacred Priesthood. Father Antony was ordained at Belmont in 1980.
Please pray for Father Antony by reciting the following prayer for the following nine days:
Pater Noster… or Our Father…
Ave Maria… or Hail Mary…
Gloria Patri… or Glory Be…
O Jesus, our great High Priest, Hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priest, Father Antony. Give him a deep faith, a bright and firm hope and a burning love which will ever increase in the course of his priestly life.
In his loneliness, comfort him, In his sorrows, strengthen him, In his frustrations, point out to him that it is through suffering that the soul is purified, and show him that he is needed by the Church, he is needed by souls, he is needed for the work of redemption.
O loving Mother Mary, Mother of Priests, take to your heart your son who is close to you because of his priestly ordination, and because of the power which he has received to carry on the work of Christ in a world which needs him so much.
Be his comfort, be his joy, be his strength, and especially help him to live and to defend your church against the devil and his evil spirits who wander about the world for the ruin of souls.
Our Lady of the Taper.
Saint David, pray for him.
Saint Antony, pray for him.
