The Consecrated and Holy Hands of Catholic Priests

“O wonderful dignity of the priests,” cries out St. Augustine;
 “in their hands, as in the womb of the Blessed Virgin, the Son of God becomes incarnate.”

~ From The Dignity and Duties of the Priest by St. Alphonsus Liguori ~

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.
