Sunday, May 23, 2010:(Fr. Fraats 50th Anniversary of his priesthood)
Jesus said: “My people, to all of My priests here I bless all of you, and especially Fr. Fraats on his Golden Jubilee. You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchisedec. Fr. Fraats has been blessed with many years, and I thank him as I do all of My priests for answering My call in your vocation to the priesthood. All of My faithful in this area where he serves should also be thankful when he gave Me to them in the Mass at the Consecration. A priest shares My sacraments in Baptism, Holy Communion, Matrimony, Confession, and the Last Rites. I thank Fr. Fraats for carrying out the mission that I have given him in all that he has done for My greater glory. Some couples celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary, but Fr. Fraats in one way has had Me as his partner in faith for fifty years. I am always watching over My priest sons. I again call on My faithful to pray for your priests and for vocations to the priesthood. I love My priests so much and My laity should love their priests as well.”
