From Opus Bono Sacerdotii : Father Peter in Prison

Opus Bono Sacerdotii Work for the Good of the Priesthood

The picture above was hand drawn by Father Peter, who is one of the many Catholic priests Opus Bono cares for in prison. It is a thank you card, signed by 42 prisoners who have benefited from Father’s love, encouragement and spiritual guidance. Even in the “monastery of the prison cell”, incarcerated Catholic priests continue their ministerial priesthood to the poor and outcast, like themselves. At Father’s request, Opus Bono provided missals for all the prisoners engaged in Father’s weekly service as a prisoner to his brother prisoners.

“For I was in prison, and you visited me.” (Matt 25:37)

What better way to answer Jesus’ call to visit Him in prison, then by helping His Alter Christus’ incarcerated in the prisons of our world? When you become a Partner In Mission with Opus Bono Sacerdotii, you receive the same exact benefit of a Corporal Act of Mercy whenever we care for a priest in prison. You fulfill Jesus’ call to visit Him in prison! It is because we represent you when we care for priests in prison and, in fact, it is because of you that we are able to do it.

Pope Francis wrote to one of our priests in prison when he was Cardinal in Argentina.
