“Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest to send more labourers to his harvest” (Mt. 9.38). These very words of Jesus Christ are supported by CARF in its mission to support the prayer services conducted in various parishes by Priests. St. Carlos Borroneo in Madrid is one of these parishes that organizes prayer vigil for priests. This takes place on the first Friday of each month from 20.00 hours to 22 hours.
“Pray for the shepherds so that the Good Lord may grant them the graces to walk with and accompany the faithful people”. (Pope Francis)
In one of the recent homilies, the Pope stressed the importance of supporting the priests on their way: “Pray for shepherds so that the Lord may grant them the graces to walk with the people, to accompany them and to be present in their midst with humility and closeness. It is fundamental that all Christians pray so that the Lord may send more labourers to his harvest and also for the holiness and faithfulness of the priests. The ministers of the church with heart full of Jesus´love (…..) of God and brothers.” The pope points out.
