ZHBM prayers for priests You Are a Priest Forever

To live in the midst of the world with no desire for its pleasures; to be a member of every family, yet belonging to none; to share all sufferings; to penetrate all secrets, to heal all wounds, to daily go from men to God to offer Him their homage and petitions; to return from God to men to bring them His pardon and hope; to have a heart of bronze for chastity; to bless and to be blest forever.

O God, what a life, and it is yours, O Priest of Jesus Christ!


~ Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire, O.P.
