  • Description

    POPE PAUL YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) JOINED IN A SPECIAL HOLY THURSDAY PRAYER ASKING THAT THE WORLD'S ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIESTS CONTINUE THEIR MISSION FAITHFULLY IN COMMUNION WITH HIM AND PRESERVE THE SPIRIT OF THEIR ORDINATION. IT WAS ONE OF FIVE PRAYERS SAID DURING TRADITIONAL MASS IN ROME'S CATHEDRAL CHURCH, THE BASILICA OF SAINT JOHN LATERAN, WHERE THE POPE GOES EACH HOLY THURSDAY FOR THE FIRST GREAT PAPAL CEREMONY OF HOLY WEEK.

    WEARING HIS MITRE AND WHITE VESTMENTS, THE POPE WASHED THE FEET OF 12 YOUNG ROMAN BOYS TO COMMEMORATE CHRIST'S ACTION IN WASHING THE FEET OF HIS 12 APOSTLES ON THE EVE OF HIS CRUCIFIXION.

    THE PRAYERS CHOSEN FOR THE SERVICE REFLECTED MANY OF THE MAJOR TALKING POINTS IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH....THE CRISIS IN THE PRIESTHOOD AND THE CONTINUANCE OF MILITARY CONFLICTS IN THE WORLD.

    EARLIER, PRIESTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD RENEWED THEIR ORDINATION VOWS OF CELIBACY AND OBEDIENCE FOLLOWING NEW VATICAN INSTRUCTIONS ISSUED LAST MONTH.

    THE PLEDGES WERE MADE DURING THE TRADITIONAL MORNING MASS WHEN PRIESTS GATHER ROUND THEIR BISHOP TO CONSECRATE THE HOLY OILS USED IN THE SACRAMENTS.
