RE: PRAYER FOR THE CLERGY AND CONSECRATED PERSONS
Reverend Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers and Sisters:
As you well know, the Year of the Clergy and Consecrated Persons will be officially declared open by His Excellency, Most Rev. Jesse E. Mercado, D.D. on Saturday, December 9, 2017 during the celebration of our Diocesan Day.
In order to find the year more meaningful and keep us constantly reminded of the importance to pray for our clergy and consecrated persons, we are sending you a copy of the Official Prayer for the Year, both in English and Tagalog.
Please recite this prayer on all Sundays of the whole year, in a manner appropriate to your parish; before or after the Mass or after the Post Communion Prayer of each Sunday Mass.
Moreover, the Commission on Liturgy and Popular Religiosity, CLPR, has prepared petitions
for the General Intercessions. Please use the recommended petition for the month which you may insert to the Prayer of the Faithful.
After the first quarter of the 2018, we shall send the second batch of the petitions which you may use for the second quarter.
Let us continue being co-workers in the Lord’s vineyard.
Rev. Fr. JOHN FRANCIS FREDERICK MANLAPIG
