Priests Take the Place of Christ: A True and Perfect Sacrifice

"The priest who imitates that which Christ did,
truly takes the place of Christ,
and offers there in the Church
a true and perfect sacrifice to God the Father."

~ St. Cyprian (258 A.D.) ~

Highlights of the 2009 Priest Ordinations at St. Marys Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, Oregon:

On Saturday, June 13, 2009, Archbishop John Vlazny ordained seven men to the priesthood. They were Fr. Eric Andersen, Fr. Fred Anthony, Fr. Mariano Escano, Fr. David Jaspers, Fr. Theodore Lange, Fr. Thomas Layton and Fr. Cary Reniva.

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.
