Father Ron from Prison



 
Work for the Good of the Priesthood

 
Deacon:
 
When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with him, he will say, “Come, O blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you, for I was in prison and you came to me.” Matthew 25:31 
 
When was the last time you visited Jesus Christ the High Priest in prison?
 
By virtue of your life-giving support to Catholic priests in prison through your generous donations to Opus Bono Sacerdotii, YOU, as our trusted Partner in Mission, visit Jesus Christ the High Priest every time we visit or send assistance to the over one hundred Catholic priests in prison who have depended daily on Opus Bono’s support since our founding in 2002.
 
Today we received in the mail this envelope and a letter from one of the priests, an alter Christus, YOU support in prison.  He penciled the picture of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI by hand in his prison cell.  Father Ron’s request was simple:
 
“Dear Joe and Pete, the Lord of Life be with you on this day, January 22nd, a day of prayer for life.  The fault is mine.  The two most precious items I possess here in prison are the Divine Office and the Magnificat, which help me to live out my life of prayer and penance with hope in His Divine Mercy.  If it is possible for you to renew my subscription for another year I would be ever so grateful.  As always, I offer my prayers and sufferings for all of you at Opus Bono and those that support you.  In Christ, Father Ron.”
 
Subscriptions to the Magnificat and other spiritual works, like the Divine Office, are costly, but desperately needed by our priests in prison.  Although Lent doesn’t begin until Ash Wednesday, February 18th, would you consider making a donation today in preparation for Lent so that we can continue to send these vital spiritual materials to our priests in prison?
 
The need is urgent!
 
You can make a donation now on-line at www.opusbono.org.
 
Or, mail your pre-Lent donation check to Opus Bono Sacerdotii, PO Box 663, Oxford, MI 48371.
 
If you prefer to pay by credit card over the phone, please call our offices at (313) 937-6305 USA.
 
Thank you for your prayers and your much need financial support for priests.
 
Grateful in the Heart of Jesus Christ the High Priest,
 
Pete
