A Priest

Let us all remember to pray for priests. So many of us are quick to criticise them and how few of us are aware of the challenges of being a priest. How few of us can contemplate the loneliness of a priest assigned to a parish alone with out the benefit of his brother priests. Thank God every day for the gift of the priesthood, without which we would never receive the Son of God in the most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. If we criticise priests and do not pray for them we are part of the problem and not part of the solution. Pray for priests, the front line in the war for souls!
If the priest is a saint, his people will be holy.

If the priest is holy, his people will be good.

If the priest is good, his people will be fair.

If the priest is fair, his people will be mediocre.

If the priest is mediocre, his people will be bad.
