Annus Sacerdotalis: the closing events
Tomorrow, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, brings to an end the Year for Priests.
A gathering of priests from all over the world is taking place in Rome, under the auspices of the Congregation for the Clergy. This gathering culminates with a vigil of prayer wiht Pope Benedict on the evening of the 10th June, and a celebration of Mass for the Solemnity tomorrow (11th June). The booklets for these two celebrations can be downloaded from the Vatican website: here. The vigil is due to take place in St Peter's Square, and the concelebration of Mass in St Peter's Basilica. The same page at the Vatican website includes links to a number of addresses that Pope Benedict has given during the Year for Priests, and that are relevant to the Year.
