Blessings on the Anniversary of your Ordination as a Pastor, cross
You didn't choose me,
but I chose you, and appointed you,
that you should go and bear fruit,
and that your fruit should remain;
that whatever you will ask of the Father
in my name, He may give it to you.
This comes with warmest thanks
for your loving service to the Church.
May the Lord bless you and keep you,
fill your life with His joy
and sustain you by His grace.
