Exodus 3:5
As Fr. David's good friend Fr. Michael Cahill is now appointed parish priest in
Johnstown, Navan, Co. Meath, the celebration of the Sung High Mass in the
Extraordinary Form will now take place in the Church of the Nativity, Johnstown, with
Fr. Michael being able to celebrate (a Low Mass) in Fr. David's absence.
The two were fellow students and good friends in Rome, and the establishment of this pattern is a providential result of a long and solid link, Fr. Michael having much helped
in the setting up of the Hermitage.

On touching God
Prayer for Priests by
St. Thérèse of Lisieux
O Jesus, eternal Priest,
keep your priests within the Shelter of
Your Sacred Heart,
where none may reach them.

Keep unstained their anointed hands
which daily touch Your Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied their lips,
daily purpled with Your Sacred Blood.

Keep pure and unearthly their hearts,
sealed with the sublime
mark of the priesthood.

Let Your Holy Love surround them and
shield them from the world's contagion.

Bless their labours with abundant fruit
and may the souls to whom they minister
be their joy and consolation,
here and in heaven
their beautiful and everlasting crown.

Amen.
