Pope John Paul II: The Desire to See Jesus In His Priests

"The world looks to the priest, because it looks to Jesus!
No one can see Christ; but everyone sees the priest,
and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord!
Immense is the grandeur of the Lord!
Immense is the grandeur and dignity of the priest!"

~ Pope John Paul II, Rome, Italy, October 13, 1979 ~

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.
