Deo gratias

For several years I have been wanting to acquire a relic of Saint Pius X. Long ago I had placed my priesthood under his patronage. Today, seemingly out-of-the-blue, I was given a first class relic of this great pope. Among other sacred vessels and vesture of a retired priest I found this treasure. The family of this fine presbyter desires that the items continue in service of God and His people. I have promised to make frequent use of the vestments, chalice/paten, and linens.
Prayer to Saint Pius X

Glorious Pope of the Eucharist, Saint Pius X, you sought "to restore all things in Christ." Obtain for me a true love of Jesus so that I may live only for Him. Help me to acquire a lively fervor and a sincere will to strive for sanctity of life, and that I may avail myself of the riches of the Holy Eucharist in sacrifice and sacrament. By your love for Mary, mother and queen of all, inflame my heart with tender devotion to her.

Blessed model of the priesthood, obtain for us holy, dedicated priests, and increase vocations to the religious life. Dispel confusion and hatred and anxiety, and incline our hearts to peace and concord. so that all nations will place themselves under the sweet reign of Christ. Amen.

Saint Pius X, pray for me
