Our Beloved Priests
In honor of the Priesthood, let us read the words of the Blessed Mother to her priests. “A priest must be like Jesus in everything…a priest must complete the duties he has been chosen to complete…obedient to his superiors…a priest must always be concerned that he is walking the most direct path to heaven…A priest is called to a higher, more direct path to holiness and this is what he must concern himself with, as opposed to a person in the world whose duty often keeps him in the world…My son, you can not imagine the changes you will witness. Souls will tumble over themselves to be back on the heavenly path. Priests will thank God for their vocations because they will be mnistering to souls who long for Jesus and who only want to serve…Priests will return to their rightful place in the world and they will be worthy of that place. It is that which I seek now, my son, to restore worthiness to your fellow priests. Will you help your mother with this heavenly call?”
Take a moment this week to thank your parish priest for his vocation. May God bless our priests.
