Steering wheel or spare tyre?: The obligation of the priest to pray

Daly, Brendan People place great value on the prayers of priests, and often ask priests to pray for them or family members. St Monica told her son St Augustine just before her death not to worry about burying her in Ostia, away from her native land. Then she said, 'Lay this body anywhere, and do not let the care of it be a trouble to you at all. Only this I ask: that you will remember me at the Lord's altar, wherever you are'.1 She realised the value of the prayers of a priest.
