True Stories of Priests in Need! 

Pope Benedict XVI Opus Bono Sacerdotii


"My dear friends, be aware of the great gift that priests represent for the Church and the world. Through their ministry the Lord continues to save mankind, to make Himself present, to sanctify. Give thanks to God and above all remain close to your priests with prayer and support, especially in moments of difficulty".

My heart breaks every time we encounter a crisis with a priest that could’ve been averted or at the very least, the outcome much more positive and fruitful if only the priest had known about us sooner.

This is the most mission critical aspect of Opus Bono’s success in caring for Catholic priests: being involved at the very beginning of a crisis in the life of a priest.

You can make a huge difference in helping us by spreading the word among your family, friends and priests. Most often the priests that contact us for assistance come from referrals by friends, family or brother priests who have heard about us from others.

In 2004, Francis Cardinal George of Chicago advised us to “gain as much publicity as possible so that priests will know about you and can come to you for help”.

As a Partner in Mission with us, I’m calling out to you from the bottom of my heart to please consider spreading the word about Opus Bono and our excellent care for priests.

May Our Lady of Priests be your health and your protection.
