Benedict XVI to Ordain 22 to Priesthood

Benedict XVI to Ordain 22 to Priesthood

VATICAN CITY, APRIL 26, 2007 ( Benedict XVI will ordain 22 men to the priesthood as the Church celebrates the 44th World Day of Prayer for Vocations.

The deacons to be ordained this Sunday come from the Redemptoris Mater Seminary; the Roman Major Seminary Madonna of Divine Love; the Capranica College, which serves the Indonesian diocese of Bani; and the Legionaries of Christ.

On Saturday, in the Basilica of St. John Lateran, there will be a prayer vigil for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.

Cardinal Camillo Ruini, the vicar of Rome, will preside over the vigil, which will include the celebration of vespers and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

The 22 deacons, and 120 religious who will make their final profession this year, will participate in the vigil.

If the MP is ever released, wouldn't it be something if the Holy Father were to ordain priests for the "traditionalist" orders, the Fraternity, the Institute, and others?
