-- By Charles De Foucauld
To a Friend Preparing for Ordination
By Fr. John J. Pasquini
The priest... is something transcendant; through baptism he brings souls to birth, through the sacrament of penance he purifies them, through communion he gives them our Lord’s Body as He Himself did at the Last Supper, and at their death He helps them to appear before the Beloved by giving them their final forgiveness and the supreme strength... Every single day of his life, a priest does what Jesus did during his three years of ministry—He teaches men to know, love and
serve their good Master.What a vocation!
