Dear Yolanda, I would like to thank you for your love for Christ and his priests. It was our humble honor to have you.
Beneath His Cross Apostolate is a divine gift given to the Church in a time of great crisis. It is truly a divine gift because it is divinely inspired and directed toward Christ through whom, in whom, and with whom all Christians share His holy Priesthood.
Furthermore, Beneath His Cross is a concrete way the faithful fulfill their priestly vocation. By virtue of baptism, all share in Christ’s priesthood. Now as the faithful gather, adore, and offer sacrifices together with the Blessed Lord to the Father, they realize what the Church teaches: “In him[Christ] all the faithful are made a holy and royal priesthood; they offer spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ, and they proclaim the perfections of him who has called them out of darkness into his marvelous light” (Presbyterorum Ordinis No. 2).
Thus, it is not possible for the ministerial priesthood of the ordained to truly be fulfilled and lived out authentically without the sacrificial and spiritual support of the common priesthood of the faithful. For that I pray one day all parishes will embrace this apostolate for the sake of Christ and her Church.
May you continue to be blessed and guided by the Spirit of Christ.
Yours in Christ,
Fr Anthony Le
