Heart of the Priest

The priestly dignity is "not based upon comfort, position, or honour, but on the fact that Jesus Christ is always close to the priest's heart - an intense union stemming primarily from his ability to make Jesus present in the celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist, a bond that offers the priest the necessary strength to endure all the demands his vocation implies."

Acknowledgements to Fr Michael Caridi and The Sower for these magnificent words.
