St. Jean Vianney on the Priesthood

"The priest is not a priest for himself;
he does not give himself absolution;
he does not administer the Sacraments to himself.
He is not for himself, he is for you.
After God, the priest is everything."

~ St. Jean Vianney ~

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
