The Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception was standing room only this morning for the ordination of these 16 exceptional men. We will be attending the first Mass of one of them tomorrow, Father's Day.

A total of 16 men will be ordained to the Catholic priesthood for the Archdiocese of Washington on June 15, marking the largest ordination class since 1960. The new ordinands include a medical doctor, a former police officer, and former army officers.

May they all discover, if they don't already know, that the Catholic Mass of the saints and Father's of the Church is the only Mass they should say

God bless these men and their families.

@SonoftheChurch and @Naomi Arai I hope for your sakes that your "hopes" and "prayers" have some substance.
These comments are nasty. As I said in my post comments, I know these men. We are attending a First Mass today. You have no idea the profound impact their families have had on the local church. I shake off your hopelessness and despair like dust off my feet.

Jungerheld unfortunately not just this post but almost every single post that pops up in my gtv feed has some negative, sarcastic, petty comments.

Jungerheld unfortunately not just this post but almost every single post that pops up in my gtv feed has some negative, sarcastic, petty comments. Even Traditional priests and prelates supportive of Traditional Catholicism are not spared. Most of the negative comments on gtv are unnecessary and unjust, and I fear they may form people's character in the long run, making them impulsive and easily distracted by the evil one into focusing on the splinter in other's eyes rather than on the beams in their own eyes. Is there a need to always react with a comment and that too with sarcasm and criticism?

If we were to measure some of the comments nowadays, by the description of charity given in 1 Corinthians 13:4-6, I think most of the negative comments would fail the test. Won't we have to account for every word of ours on Judgement day?
4 Charity is patient, is kind: charity envieth not, dealeth not perversely; is not puffed up; 5 Is not ambitious, seeketh not her own, is not provoked to anger, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth with the truth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

I pray for these new priests and thank God for them and their families. God bless.

Let us hopefully pray that they are not all sodomites. 😳😐

Holy cow. Largest since VII but ONLY 16? That’s sad. Probably poorly formed, too. Fluff-tastic. I can only hope and “power of prayer” (play on words on the article heading) pray that they reject Vatican II and all its poisonous fruit.

Do any of them reject Vatican 2?
