Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa: Message to Seminarians and Priests

"The Eucharist is the principal reason for the ordained priesthood...
how crucial it is then for our own happiness and for the sake of a fruitful ministry
that we cultivate a deep love for the Eucharist, a deep love for the Eucharist."

~ Pope John Paul II ~

"You have not become a priest to become a social worker...
this is what we want from you--to teach us to be holy."

~ Blessed Mother Teresa ~

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.
