|Our Holy Father Norbert on the Priesthood|
“O Priest, who are you?
“You are my Order. Just as bishops have their canons delegated to offer public prayer in their diocese, in the same way you are my canons, not just for one diocese, but for the universal Church.”- Pope Pius XI
O Priest, who are you?
You are not yourself because you are God
You are not of yourself because you are the servant and minister of Christ.
You are not your own because you are the spouse of the Church.
You are not yourself because you are the mediator between God and man.
You are not from yourself because you are nothing.
What then are you? Nothing and everything.
Take care lest what was said to Christ on the cross be said to you:
"He saved others, himself he cannot save!"
