If you are on vacation, or in the military and stationed away from home, you need to know what time and where Masses are held in order to fulfill your Sunday Obligation to attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Well, lucky for all of us, the good folks at masstimes.org have put together a website that will help you to do just that.
Remember, the greatest thing you can ever do is to attend a Mass, the unbloody sacrifice of Jesus Christ perpetuated through time and space forever, for each generation of humans. This sacrifice is NEVER repeated, therefore, because it never ends.

Prayer for Priests
LORD JESUS CHRIST,
eternal High Priest, you offered yourself to the
Father on the altar of the Cross and through the
outpouring of the Holy Spirit gave your priestly
people a share in your redeeming sacrifice.
Hear our prayer for the sanctification of our priests.
Grant that all who are ordained to the ministerial
priesthood may be ever more conformed to you,
the divine Master. May they preach the
Gospel with pure heart and clear conscience.
Let them be shepherds according to your own Heart,
single- minded in service to you and to the Church
and shining examples of a holy,simple and joyful life.
Through the prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
your Mother and ours,draw all priests and the flocks
entrusted to their care to the fullness of eternal life where
you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God,for ever and ever.
