Please bring back ‘prayers for priests’


To the Editor:

I have noted, with sadness, that you have omitted the Prayers for Priests and the Necrology of Priests from the Rhode Island Catholic and I wonder why?

Not that I dropped to my knees in prayer, but seeing the different names of the wonderful priests of our diocese both living and deceased, on a weekly basis was a great inspiration to me even before my son became a priest.

Perhaps this letter, if printed, will start a write-in campaign to have that small but inspiring column restored.

I hope so!

James Woolley


(The decision was made to run it once a year, in November, instead of on a weekly basis. We know that many people do miss this on a regular basis.)
