The Catholic television network EWTN is planning to air a special Holy Hour in honor of the Year for Priests at 3 pm on the First Friday of each month.
The program will be run by the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word. It will begin airing on September 4 and end in June 2010.
Each Holy Hour will include a sermon by Fr. Miguel Marie, M.F.V.A, as well as hymns and prayers specifically for priests.
An EWTN press release cites an admonition of the famous priest St. John Vianney: “If you want good priests, pray for the ones you have.”
The global TV network says it is planning a mini-site for its special Year for Priests programming, including prayers, papal documents, and video clips.
The mini-site will be part of the broadcaster’s main site at http://www.ewtn.com.
